Actually it would be a good weekend project with the kids. You have to think about where to mount the sensors to get good readings for wind and temperature without being affected too much by the sun. Then you have to actually go out and mount them, and check the wireless connection to the base station. Check that they are working by spinning the wind sensor and warming up the temperature sensor.
Then set the max and min alarm settings on the base station, discussing what they should be. Check that the base station is recording maximums and minimums for different time periods. Discuss how it tries to predict weather from the pressure, outdoor humidity and temperature, and what the different icons mean. Check it for a few days to see what max/min readings it is recording, and how accurate the predictions are.
Compare to the announced values you get from the weather service via phone/radio/Google/Alexa, and note how they are a bit different in your exact local area.
