What exactly is the AcuRite access's reporting to weather underground definition of a wind gust. Is it the instantaneous highest wind speed recorded by station since the last refresh?

Hello Michael,
The AcuRite Access is sending the highest wind speed reading from the last 5 minutes as a "Wind Gust".  Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thank you.
