Unless you live in an extremely remote area, or a strange micro-climate, there are various networks of amateur, professionals, and government weather reporting sites that can be accessed for free on the web for almost all areas. One of the popular ones is called the weatherbug network. You can also download browser add-ons and other utilities that let you see real time conditions from The Weather Channel, Accuweather, and/or other weather services for almost any zip code in the country.
I've found that the real cheap units sold in the big box stores for $20-$50 are accurate for temperature, but a real joke for humidity. You probably need to purchase professional quality equipment costing much more to get something accurate and reliable. Why pay a lot of $$ for such a device with remote sensing when you can get just as accurate (or more so) condition reports for your immediate area for free?

If everyone had your attitude there would not be as many free stations for you to look at.

So you are suggesting that no-one with internet access should take advantage of the weather condition resources available on the web because it is bad for the economy?
To follow that logic, none of us should use the web for communications (bad for the Post Office and the phone company), obtain news (bad for the newspaper business), or do any other fee-free activity on-line when there is a more expensive alternative way.
