    Sorry nothing yet just got this out of the local newspaper. But they hope to get some software to produce graphics to present information in a more interesting manner, as the recording continues.

    okay then its just that this post

    The max gust was 88mph. During a period of 1 month there were 107 times when gusts recorded over hurricane force.

    and then explained as any gust > 83mph, when the highest is given as 88mph does seem a lot between 84 and 88mph?

    Yes i think thats what they are saying during a storm we do usaully get high 

    gusts every few minutes. But now i think they mean gusts from 74mph to 88mph was 107 times.

    But ill post here when they bring out more information on what they are recording.

    Interesting. Do they record the mean speed at lower heights than 20m? it would be interesting to see how the speed increases from, say, 2m above the surface to that at 10m or 30m.

    No they only do the 40m 30m and 20m but im sure the mast has more wind speed sensors than 3. Hopefully when they get software they can show more information at diffrent heights.
