Automatic Weather Stations (AWS) are more affordable these days. AWS do generally produce acceptable readings, but only if the sensors are located correctly. Sensors incorrectly placed, e.g. to close to walls / buildings, trees, hedges, fences will produce temperature anomalies. The Stevenson screen is designed to shield the instruments against precipitation and direct heat radiation. At the same time the double louvers allow air to circulate freely around the instruments.
