The Tempest Weather System by WeatherFlow measures and reports the weather directly from your yard, making it the perfect companion to a Rachio Smart Sprinkler Controller. Leveraging powerful machine learning and modeling capabilities, the Tempest weather station provides the most precise forecast available. No moving parts, solar-powered, completely wireless, simple installation, with instant access to your weather data.


Weather data from your own backyard makes Rachio even better

You can now see Tempest data in the Rachio app and use your Tempest as the weather source for your smart sprinkler controller.
