Wind speeds

Is their any way of gauging weather a wind speed is accurate or not? Unless you actually live in that area is the anything that helps to guess weather a wind speed on a site is accurate or not?

Because I want to know is what where reading from places like this Are accurate

Also some gusts seem unbelievable. Could they be caused by freak gusts?

Thanks.

It's hard to check really.

I tend to measure mine against the nearest METAR station (Stornoway Airport in my case, which is only 6 miles away) as these are calibrated and should be quite accurate.

Temperature, Baro & Dew Point are done for me on CWOP, which comes in handy for checking your installation and whether your repositioning of sensors has had an effect or not.
