    Does anyone know of decent hardware that interfaces with a mac for recording external temperature and humidity?

    Ideally I'm looking for a device that could be set up wireless outside that would be equipped with a hygrometer and thermometer, then could send data to the mac that would be put into a database, and then used to harvest and calculate interesting statistics about the weather.

    I'm aware of this http://practsol.com/thummac.htm from another thread, but it isn't wireless and it looks like the software might not be all that great.

    Any amateur meteorologists out there know about this kind of stuff?

    There are many options for both hardware and software. These options run the gamut in price. Decide how much you want to spend and then Google "home weather station mac."

    Couple of interesting options out there, but a lot of it looks either cheapish or outdated software wise. The Onset stuff looks ok. Anyone have experience using any of the software out there, and what did you think of it?

    Onset deals primarily with professional scientists. If you want professional equipment and software, then Google that.
