I got a few wind gust notifications this morning and decided to pull up cell phone app to look at max and Ave wind spWeds since midnight.

In the recent past, I thought the average was a waste since it was the same chart as max speed just divided by 2. However, this time the 2 charts were completely different. See attached pic

Did Chaney update how average wind speed is calculated?

If you would have seen average wind readings a few months ago, it was not like what it is today. I he been watching this and co.planing about it for montha.

It has changed.

Documents can say one thing but the key is how it is implemented and what is charted. Previous charts were garbage.
