Oregon Scientific's Touch Weather Series tells the temperature, doesn't break the bank

"Oregon Scientific" and "home weather station" kind of go hand in hand, so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that the company's unleashing a new three-pack of colorful weather units here at CES this week. Starting on the left, the $24.99 model displays indoor temperature along with up to three channels of outdoor temps; it also includes a clock and calendar with alarm, which makes it a serviceable bedside clock if you're really into the weather. Moving upmarket a tad, the $39.99 Touch Weather Thermometer with Humidity (pictured center) is exactly that: the aforementioned temperature features plus a daily min / max display and both indoor and outdoor humidity stats. Finally, the $49.99 Touch Advanced Weather Station (right) adds a 12-hour weather forecast along with 24 hours' worth of historical barometric data. All are powered by a pair of AA batteries and have touchscreen control -- hence the names, we imagine.
