Get your own local forecast, highs/lows, totals or averages, and graphs for virtually all weather variables over the past 24 days, months - even years - all without using a PC.
Reported Record-Setting Wind Speed
In 2017, a Vantage Pro2 on St. Barts survived the front eyewall of Irma, a Category 5 hurricane, and reported the highest wind speed ever recorded by a personal weather station on the Weather Underground network.
Update 10x Faster Than The Competition
See the weather as it happens with near real-time updates on quickly-changing wind, temperature, and rain data.
Transmission Up To 1,000 ft. (300 m)
Frequency-hopping, spread spectrum radio provides 3x the transmission distance of the competition with improved reception through multiple walls and greater immunity from RF interference.
Chose Wireless Or Cabled
Wireless stations send data effortlessly to the console via the solar-powered transmitter. Cabled stations offer economical installations where lightning risk is minimal.
Energized by the sun during the day, by the onboard supercapacitor at night. Lithium battery provides backup when needed.
Passes 10 Rigorous Tests Before Shipping
Minimum of 10 tests before shipping include rigorous calibrations and material endurance.
Made By US: Designed, Assembled And Tested In California.
Davis is a recognized leader in precision weather instrumentation for over 30 years.
AeroCone Rain Collector
Shaped for improved rain data accuracy in high winds. Interior walls are engineered to reduce splash-out; debris screen locks into place. The factory-calibrated tipping spoon is self-emptying and corrosion-resistant.
Choose from three options to increase temperature accuracy by protecting the sensor from solar radiation.
Passive Radiation Shield (Standard)
Received a 5-star rating from the World Meteorological Organization. Protects temperature sensors from solar radiation and radiated or reflected heat sources. Engineered with multi-plate construction for maximum airflow.
24-Hour Fan-Aspirated Radiation Shield
Designed to maximize sensor accuracy, 24 hours a day. During daylight hours, the solar-powered, motor-driven fan draws a constant airflow through the sensor chamber at 500 feet per minute (2,5 m/s). At night, when the effects of radiation are reduced, the fan runs on battery power and the airflow slows to 280 feet per minute (1,4 m/s).
Daytime Fan-Aspirated Radiation Shield
The solar-powered daytime fan draws a constant airflow through the sensor chamber during the day. At night, when the effects of solar radiation are reduced, the fan stops running.
Davis's Iconic Anemometer
Wind-tunnel tested to 200 mph/322 kph, the anemometer reports wind speed and direction in near-real time. The rugged components measured the highest wind speed ever recorded by a personal weather station during Hurricane Irma, yet are sensitive to the lightest breeze.
Choose A Plus Model
Solar and UV sensors come pre-installed.
Measures the sunburning portion of the UV spectrum so you can enjoy the outdoors safely. Display UV index, dose rate, and daily and accumulated dose.
Solar Radiation Sensor
Detects solar radiation at wavelengths of 300 to 1100 nm. Displays incident power and cumulative energy, as well as evapotranspiration for precise irrigation of lawns and crops.

Sensor included on Vantage Pro2 Plus. View current UV index, UV index for the day, the daily, monthly and yearly highs; or change scale to see UV in current, hourly and daily MEDs. Set alarm to warm of high UV dose/index.
Sensor included on Vantage Pro2 Plus. View solar radiation, highs for the day, month and year as well as evapotranspiration and Temp/Hum/Sun/Wind (THSW) index. Set alarms for high readings.
View last 24 storm totals with start and end dates. View daily, monthly, yearly rainfall and rain rate.
Five-position trend arrow shows whether barometric pressure is rising, falling or steady.
Create a network of additional sensors
Track pool temperature, soil moisture in the garden, or humidity in the wine cellar with a customized network of sensors reporting to your Vantage Pro2 console.
GroWeather: The Standard In Agricultural Weather Monitoring
The agricultural-focused GroWeather sensor suite is configured specifically to deliver the data growers need to make critical crop decisions. It includes all the core Vantage Pro2 sensors as well as a Solar Radiation Sensor for tracking evapotranspiration.
