  1. I have recently purchased the Oregon Scientific WMR89 weather station, it's a decent ish piece of kit, the one thing that bothers me is the wind readings. According to the instructions, wind speed only transmits to the base unit every 58 seconds. The highest gust recorded was just 16.1mph on Tuesday (the winds gusts were much higher that that here in Worthing) Wind vein is mounted on a pole with no obstructions so I don't think its placement is the issue What I want to know is...does the wind speed every 58th second get sent to the base unit, (by which time the strongest gusts of wind have been missed!) or the strongest wind speed within the previous 58 seconds....get sent to the base unit which case the wind vein is probably faulty?
  2. There must be something wrong with my new weather station, strongest gust measured at just 13mph!

  21. Yup remember it well. was cloudy all evening (it’s not now though) then 20 mins after sunset BOOM, storms kicked off a few miles away from me in the channel, and got pretty much a direct hit, and non stop lightning and rain for 3 hours. cant see that happening tonight though, the sky doesn’t look threatening. But time will tell.
