I have to be missing something simple, but I looked really hard and cannot for the life of me figure out how to determine wind speeds. There's a wonderful map, and the little 'animated particles' are wonderful at showing direction and sometimes they move faster than other times, but for more than a year I've had to go to another weather site to find wind speeds. There's some color coded key on the map, but on any given day with a 4 kt wind, the particles are red, which according to the key would be tropical storm strength and completely wrong. I must be missing something basic?
