Abstract
Stored data and records of weather parameter like temperature, atmospheric pressure, relative humidity, wind speed measured remotely by using appropriate sensors is important in environmental, weather monitoring and many industrial processes. A device for weather monitoring through measuring, processing and recording is developed to monitor and display the atmospheric temperature, atmospheric pressure, relative humidity, solar radiation and wind speed. The aim is to design and implement mobile weather monitoring system that can be remotely used. The materials that were used including: Anemometer (wind speed sensor), DHT11 (temperature and relative humidity sensor), MPX5100AP (pressure sensor), LDR (Light Dependent Resistor) for light intensity 16x2 LCD (Liquid Cristal Display), a microcontroller, and a Memory Card (MMC). At the end, a weather monitoring system was implemented and it was used to monitor five weather parameters and store in the memory Card.
