Survival Guide - Dust Settles: Weather Station
A weather station is designed to help you monitor and predict upcoming weather
conditions. This building will allow you to protect your camp from storms to
help prevent losses due to high winds, hail, or even worse. You will only be
able to build one of these buildings,
but once it is constructed, you will be able to set your weather defenses to
active to help mitigate the damage that severe storms might otherwise cause.
Building your weather station also allows you to see the current concentration
of Strontium 90 fallout.
You will only be able to build 1 weather station for your camp, but once it is built, you will have all the weather protection possible without a mastery. Once your weather station is constructed, you will be able to turn on your weather defenses. This will allow you to protect your buildings from severe storms. Your weather station will need 4 land, 4 building supplies, and 4 workers to construct. Once built, it will have no daily costs and will require only 2 people for staffing. You will need building supplies if you turn weather defenses on, but only if a storm hits your camp. You will use the Construct page to build this structure, like any other building.

You can improve the forecast ability of your weather station by researching
Architecture and/or Spatial Logic. This will decrease the number of building
supplies needed to cover your camp. Architecture and Ingenuity will increase
your chances of predicting whether or not a storm will be mild so you'll waste
fewer supplies on non-damaging storms.
You will only ever be able to build 1 weather station.
There are only a couple of displays associated with your weather station. Your
main display will be on the right-hand side
of your screen. Here you can see what the weather is supposed to be like for
the day. Beneath the weather and season
display is a link for your weather defenses. This will be your secondary display
to remind you when your weather defenses are on or off.
The only things you should keep in mind if you decide to demolish
your weather station is that you cannot activate your weather
defenses if you do not have a weather station, nor can you see the fallout
levels in the atmosphere. This can leave your camp very vulnerable if a severe
storm hits or if the fallout levels begin
climbing to a lethal point.
