The study which uses the technology communication of Global System for Mobile (GSM) for fabricated weather monitoring system evaluated the reliability, accuracy and efficiency of the system through performance measure of the experimental collected parameters for temperature and humidity and statistically analyzed the data using regression technique with the aid of statistical package for social sciences (SPSS), version 17.0. The experimental data were collected for 126 times which comprises of morning, afternoon and evening period sub-divided to 42 observations respectively. The findings revealed that although the formulated models displayed a high level of significant effect but it accuracy in prediction is low for both parameters except for morning and afternoon period where only temperature is accurately validated in predicting the experimental data based on the considered location of the fabricated weather monitoring system. The study therefore concludes that the mechanism accuracy of the fabricated weather monitoring system can be improved upon.
