Preparing Wind Velocity and Direction Summaries

Windbreaks for Citrus

    FAWN is the Florida Automated Weather Network, a network of local weather reporting stations that provide current weather conditions including wind velocity and direction. FAWN records and archives wind readings every 15 minutes. Those data can be used to create a wind summary for many locations in Florida .

    The following instructions describe how to use FAWN to gather and import wind data into an Excel spreadsheet. Experience with Excel files is required.

    Wind data for the Homestead area during the summer of 2002 (May-Sept) are used to illustrate how to generate wind data summaries from the FAWN site.
