2Version 1.0.1 Release. Minor change.
- Mar 17, 2005Changed wind gust calculation to the following:
The NWS considers gust to be the maximum unaveraged wind measured
over the last 10 minutes. The 10 minute period is independent of the
data reporting period. So, if the reporting time is every hour at
the top of the hour, only the wind during the 50 to 60 minute period
is used in the gust determination. If you report every 5 minutes,
you use the maximum of the peak wind for the past two data periods.
