My wind speed spinner was going 90 to nothing and only indicated 4 - 8 mph during Nate in NW Florida the speed of the spinner seemed not to show the real wind speed?  Seemed that the wind speed should have been higher judging by the way it was spinning?

Hello Lesley,

 What is your model number? How high is your sensor mounted? What is the sensor around? We have provided you with a diagram on how a sensor can be affected based off of how it is mounted. Thank you.
