Wind Speed

Wind speed is the rate of horizontally moving air past a fixed point, and can be measured by an anemometer. Wind speed is caused when air moves from high to low pressure, which is often driven by changes in temperature.

Current Wind Speed – AcuRite's Atlas™ transmits wind speed data every 10 seconds and the 3-in-1 Weather Sensor and 5-in-1 Weather Sensor transmit wind speed data every 18 seconds. Current wind speed is the highest wind speed recorded over that 10 – 18-second window.

Average Wind Speed – An average of all wind speed readings collected over the past 2 minutes.

Peak Wind Speed – A rolling value showing the highest wind speed recorded over the past 60 minutes.
