A location where weather data is collected. In the United States, the NOAA does the official weather observations and record-keeping, but doing this on one's own is also a popular hobby. Using APRS can also provide a possible motivation for this hobby. You can see an example of a hobbyist weather station at: http://cx47646-a.phnx1.az.home.com/weather/

Weather station. (Meteor.)

A station for taking meteorological observations, making weather forecasts, or disseminating such information. Such stations are of the first order when they make observations of all the important elements either hourly or by self-registering instruments; of the second order when only important observations are taken; of the third order when simpler work is done, as to record rainfall and maximum and minimum temperatures.
