 At 3:30pm on the 29th I noticed that gusts are now being displayed at every data point instead of only when wind reached 18mph. It's a lot more unneeded clutter in my opinion but it seems to be the current trend.

Is this happening on all 5 in 1 WU graphs? I see it on another Acurite near me but I don't know if it is a universal change.

I'm also wondering if this change is on WU's end, Acurite's server end, or a firmware upgrade to the hub. I use a SmartHub and although I doubt Acurite would be sending any changes out to Smarthubs, who knows?

Acurite made a change in gust reporting with the Access, eliminating the 18 mph restriction.

I'm not aware of them sending out a firmware change to the SmartHUB, though.  It would seem unlikely that they would do that.
