How nice would it be to not always have to check the online weather forecast or have to brave the elements to determine the temperature? An outdoor thermometer is your answer. This nifty device lets you know what to expect in Celsius and Fahrenheit degrees, and in some models, also the precipitation and humidity levels. For optimal results, place your outdoor thermometer out of the direct sun and in an appropriate area if also doubling as a rainfall gauge.
There are wall-mounted, window-cling, and stand-alone models, all of which come in an impressive array of designs. Sure, you can have an outdoor thermometer that resembles the traditional model of thought, but if desiring something a bit jazzier, go for it. Glass, dial, and digital thermometers resemble pieces of art, stopwatches, and scientific instruments. Some include clocks, swivel, are backlit for night time viewing, and have memories to store high and low temperatures of record. In rustproof finishes that evoke antique, modern, vintage, and avant-garde, your outdoor thermometer will blend in and yet stand out.
