@TomSlavkovsky said in Wind direction interval:
@lightmastertech For now, we will adopt the rules from Citizen Weather Observer Program (CWOP).
To reduce small variations in second to second measurements that are attributed to sensor sampling “noise” and not representative of ambient temperature, the following time sampling intervals for measurements are suggested:
Temperature: latest 5 minute average
Dew Point: latest 1 minute average
Mean Wind Speed and Direction: 2-minute mean of speed and direction sampled before the observation valid time sampled from high-resolution data (minimum: 5 second instrument polling).
Gust: Maximum instantaneous wind value observed in the 10 minutes before the observation valid time sampled from full resolution data (minimum: 5 second instrument polling).
Reporting frequency: 1-minute updates derived from the minimum reported pressure value observed in the past minute. Typically, basis for the 1-minute minimum pressure reports are from a series of ten 6-second interval instantaneous pressure measurements.
Okay, I'll update my Meteobridge to use those averages. Thanks.
