Tree in High Wind

For anyone who is interested, a mistake in the METAR report has given us a chance to see what happens to the tree when there are 150 mph wind gusts.

Wow Don,

That's very impressing.
A waist of the tree, but certainly a stable house and a solid snowman :)

For the metric users under us 150 mph is over 240 km/h!

Thanks for sharing,
Fred

Hi Don,

I was so happy to see your screen print. Pasha and I worked on a Growing Tree problem last spring. I was very happy to see no tree growth. :)

Hi Fred,

I am sure you remember the Growing Tree topic.

If anyone would like to see the tree in high wind, the windiest METAR station in the world is Mount Washington, New Hampshire, United States. Today, there is dense fog at the station so you can hardly see the tree. This METAR station is how we fixed the Growing Tree topic.

I hope you enjoy viewing the windiest METAR station in the world. ;)

Marty

Thanks for the tip Marty.
I've added it immediately.
