When uploading windspeed is there somewhere I can fid that describes where each of the following is used? I'm trying to figure out which element drives the gusts reading in the display.
winddir - [0-360 instantaneous wind direction]windspeedmph - [mph instantaneous wind speed]
windgustmph - [mph current wind gust, using software specific time period]
windgustdir - [0-360 using software specific time period]
windspdmph_avg2m  - [mph 2 minute average wind speed mph]
winddir_avg2m - [0-360 2 minute average wind direction]
windgustmph_10m - [mph past 10 minutes wind gust mph ]
windgustdir_10m - [0-360 past 10 minutes wind gust direction]

I have only seen these 3 used/saved on our side:winddir - [0-360 instantaneous wind direction]
windspeedmph - [mph instantaneous wind speed]
windgustmph - [mph current wind gust, using software specific time period]


I don't believe we use/save any of these:  windgustdir - [0-360 using software specific time period]
windspdmph_avg2m  - [mph 2 minute average wind speed mph]
winddir_avg2m - [0-360 2 minute average wind direction]
windgustmph_10m - [mph past 10 minutes wind gust mph ]
windgustdir_10m - [0-360 past 10 minutes wind gust direction]

Thank you for asking the time to answer. I can probably simplify the string I'm sending then. I thought it seemed like a lot of wind data that wasn't being used.
