Mark you have options first if you share with Weather underground they can follow you system there.  Or they could set up a My acurite account and follow your system, they would need your Mac address. By following they can see your system but cannot change anything.

Hello Mark, 

Make sure you have sharing enabled on your account under settings>share weather> click edit under enable online sharing and check the box for your device to allow sharing. Click save once you are done. Then follow the steps below for your neighbor. 

Your neighbor can create a My Acurite account. Once their account is created they can go to settings>share weather> and click on add for accounts I follow. They would need your Device ID. This will allow them to view your weather without you having to give them your email and password, and they won't be able to make any administrative changes on your account. Please let us know if there is anything further we can assist you with.
