Weather Quality Report Wind Speed "errors"
« on: September 11, 2019, 11:48:17 AM »
I get the emailed quality report daily for my station C4114.

The "Speed knts" column has crazy errors showing in bold, in the thousands of units.

Here is a small sample from today:
Date                   UTC   Alt (mb)     Temp F          DewPt F            Wind Dir    Speed knts

10-SEP-2019   0150   1024.6   -0.69   54   +2.74   48   -0.17           360   +65   0.9   +3258.9
10-SEP-2019   0155   1024.5   -0.59   54   +2.74   48   -0.17              0   +43   0.0   +4458.2
10-SEP-2019   0240   1023.8   -0.52   54   +2.94   49   -0.88           360   +66   0.9   +1936.8

My data on MesoWest looks good with all "OK".

Anyone else seeing this and/or know what is going on? I don't think that my wind speed errors are in the Mach range... :shock:

Same here on DW9356.  I am failing 49/49 in the "Wind Dir" and the "Speed Knts" columns.

I should add that the 3-day Madis report shows this for wind (FW4751):
https://weather.gladstonefamily.net/site/search?site=F4751;Get%20information=Get%20information;days=3#Data
   
MADIS
rating   MADIS rating 73% QC OK
Sensor fails following checks:
L3 Spatial Consistency (with this link describing that check: https://madis.noaa.gov/madis_sfc_qc.shtml).
