Issue with wind speed/gust graphs

Discussion and questions about Cumulus weather station software version 1. This section and its subforums are the main place to get help with Cumulus. Anything which is not specific to the type of weather station goes in here; for anything specific to a type of weather station, please use the appropriate subforum. Use the 'website development' section for any questions relating to creating or running a web site for Cumulus data. Discussion of the stations themselves in these sections is fine.

Issue with wind speed/gust graphs

Postby espana23 » Thu Jun 21, 2018 6:09 pm

Hi,

I noticed the following issue in regards to the wind speed/gust graphs:

When viewing the graph through View->Graphs, the wind speed vs wind gust looks correct (i.e. gust values are higher than speed values). When I view the graph through View->Select-A-Graph, the gust values are lower than the speed values. I will include screenshots showing the difference.

Does anyone know why this might be happening? (my weather station is a Davis Vantage Vue)

Thanks!

There is an explanation in the FAQ/Wiki regarding wind speeds and gusts depending on the type of station. You might want to look at 'peak gust' in select-a-graph rather than 'wind gust'.
