Hello,

It's my first post on the new arduino forum.

I made a weather station using arduino fio, xbee, cell phone battery and a solar panel array(2 now I'll put more later if needed). For the sensors I have an anemometer, wind direction, rain gauge(all sparkfun), photocell(sparkfun), DS18B20(temperature from local supplier). I'm waiting to delivery here in Brazil humidity and pressure sensors(sparkfun).

I use the code below as a start:
http://code.google.com/p/pweatherstation/

During development I put it on my room porch(of course it's not the best place), but I'm building to my father-in-law that is a farmer and has tons of space available.

Roadmap(in order):
- code at http://www.bitbucket.org/trunet/ (not yet, I'll release soon)
- make a stevenson screen to assemble everything
- assemble solar panels and make it waterproof
- make the soil moisture
- soil moisture deployment
- humidity sensor deployment
- pressure sensor deployment
- schematic
- printed circuit board

I'd like to thanks Rui for the initial code and support:

The DS18B20 will be waterproof(ed???) and I'll put it underground to measure soil temperature.

I've been making hobbyist weather monitors for years... and the windspeed/ wind-direction/ rainfall sensor Wagner has used looks to be a great choice... I would commend it to anyone.

Easy way to access the webpage for it:
