Re: [wuhu_software_group] Wind speed calculations
- Wind speed is the "constant" speed that the wind is blowing, i.e. a wind
from the west at 2 mph.
Wind Gust is a gust of wind "inside" of the wind speed that causes a
higher reading. In the above example say a gust comes up for a bit and
blows at 30 mph.
Ave. Speed would be all the totals of wind speed for a certain time
period divided by the time period to give an average number. So for an
hour the wind is 2 mph and then 0 and then 5 and then 3 and then 2 and
finally 0. The average speed for that hour is 6 mph.
Or at least that's how I think it works. LOL
