Method Summary

Wind and gust speeds reported at St Laurent Li Taan Aen Staansyoon indicate speeds that would be felt nearby on the lake only when the wind blows from SSW through W to NNW. The anemometer is sheltered from the full force of the wind by trees in other directions.

Rain measurements on 2021-09-24 are false recordings due to testing during deployment.

Wind and gust wind speeds are measured 3 m above the ground surface. Environment Canada and Manitoba Department of Agriculture weather stations report faster speeds because they are recorded on higher, 10 m towers.
