Wind sensor cups are mounted 15 feet above the peak of the house, so about 50 feet off the ground.

North, South and West areas are open to the wind, producing accurate wind speed and direction readings.
In fact, to the south, open area is a good thousand miles as the weather station is on the beach of the Atlantic Ocean.
The wetlands and Great South Bay are to the north, so there is a clear open 3 mile span of water.
The west is a 200 yard parking lot and then some small homes. 1st bigger building is 5 miles away.

THE EAST WIND IS BLOCKED by a larger house that is at least as high as the wind vane, 70' away.

THERFORE, EAST WIND SPEEDS ARE VERY SUSPECT!!

Direct East Winds might be blowing 25 mph, indicator at 10-15 mph or sometimes less.
Southeast to a lesser degree and Northeast to an even lesser degree are affected.
