We love this weather instrument because it is so easy to read with its simply picture based face. The face clearly indicates if you can look forward to Rain, Drizzle, Cloudy or Sunny so that you can plan your day (and washing timeline).
The perfect design for minimalists, people who love modern design and men that are hard to shop for.
