Earlier this month I purchased a Raspberry Pi to set up a small computer in my home office, namely for checking the weather and watching storm chaser streams on YouTube. I should have purchased a Raspberry Pi 5 with a bit more punch, as the Raspberry Pi 4 I purchased is very nice and capable, but it was a little slow for my needs.

Last weekend I changed direction a little bit and repurposed the Raspberry Pi 4 into a weather station, showing stats from the weather station we have on the roof. I used the software called WeatherFlow_PiConsole available here on GitHub (yay open source!).

I’m quite happy with the result.

While I can’t provide everyone that stops by the blog with a weather station like this, you can see the stats from our weather station on Weather Underground on their WunderMap.
