I have contacted Weatherflow as I have some doubt as to the accuracy of recent reporting at this sensor!
When this first started going high the faulty readings were believable and contributed to a major misunderstanding between friends as I refused to be subjected to 40 to 60 MPH gusts that I thought would spread throughout the central gorge as well. Plausible, but not reality!

I suspect a bird built its nest on the sensor.
Rumor has it that it's the Peconic Puffin. Smile

The sensor was malfunction both as to gust and direction. It is down for repair. Weatherflow is well aware of the problem.
