Simple weather station on Arduino

To refresh some basic knowledge about electronics and Arduino platform we will implement a weather station.

Let's define requirements we'll have to out weather station. It should:
  • Display current temperature and humidity
  • Display current time and date
  • Set time and date manually using buttons
We will need following components:
  • Arduino-compatible microcontroller
  • DHT11 temperature/humidity sensor
  • Real-time clock module
  • Small breadboard
  • 2 small push buttons
  • 2 1kOhm resistors
  • Bunch of wires
  • 5V DC power adapter
