Wrong data being pulled from Madis
There's a station near Beverly, WA, KF7SHY-11 that's having it's wind speed/gust under reported.
For example, right now windy reports 1mph sustained, gusts to 2. However the station itself is reporting 9mph gusts to 13.
Here's the link to the station direct from Madis:
This is one of our flying sites so getting the wind corrected would be super helpful :)
Thank you for all your work that you do, cheers!
@thesoaringpotato Hello, could you please post a link to the station on Windy?
@Korina My apologies for the delay. Here's the direct link on Windy.
(Looking at the windy link, I can see already that the issue is somehow AV879 in Osceola, IN somehow got swapped with AV884 on Windy's end.)
@thesoaringpotato Hello, do you have any comparison with the original source?
@Korina Thank you for your patience and help with this.
I apologize, I don't understand the question. I will do my best to answer.
This station (AV879) -> https://www.windy.com/station/madis-AV879?46.817,-119.886,8 is incorrectly sited near Beverly, WA on Windy's site.
By looking at both pages for AV879, you can compare readings and see that they are identical.
This station (AV884) -> https://www.windy.com/station/madis-AV884?41.709,-86.078,8 is incorrectly sited near Osceola, IN on Windy's site.
By looking at both pages for AV884, you can compare readings and see that they are identical.
Somehow on Windy's side, AV884 and AV879 got switched.
I hope I was able to answer your question. Please let me know if you have any further questions. Thank you for your time and efforts,
@Korina Is there any update to this issue? Thank you,
