La Crosse is one of the leaders in indoor-outdoor thermometers, and the La Crosse C85845 is the 3rd version of this well-known model.
It is a weather station type with a setting for outdoor/indoor humidity and temperature percentages, time, date, and weather forecast.
Features La Crosse Color Wireless Forecast Station C85845
It has a 330ft range, and in our testing, the La Crosse C85845 picked up a solid signal from the sensor at that max distance.
This model is the largest of the new thermometers we reviewed and was the easiest read from the room.
Its bright LED screen is divided into 4 sections: outdoor temp and humidity, indoor temp and humidity, weather forecast with 3D icons of clouds, rain, sunshine, snow, and hail, and time/date, which synchronizes with the atomic signal broad from Colorado.
La Crosse C85845 is a weather station for weather geeks. Besides the basic readings, you can also program setting for temp trends, maximum and minimal temperature levels, and notifications for uncomfortable humidity levels and low/high temperature.
Programming is slightly complex, but the La Crosse website walks you through it in every detail.
The La Crosse C85845 records barometric pressure over a week before it can start to forecast the next day’s weather.
Like all of the new variants we reviewed, the build manual warns that forecasting is 70 to 75 percent accurate.
Our tests were conducted in California, where there’re few fluctuations in weather, and on an especially humid day, the La Crosse C85845 predicted rain in the unlikely forecast.
