Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
I've just bought a new weather station.

Th old one failed some time back, it only lasted a few years before the wind speed bearings gave out quickly followed by the wind direction indicator bearings.

I've gone for a different design this time.

My maximum reading on the wind speed on the old one was 124mph but I think it was failing then and giving spurious readings. Maximum that I have faith in was 86mph, which was caused by a violent thermal passing over, not quite a tornado, but in that family of events.
