With very grateful thanks to the kind folk at the Forth Road Bridge, FifeWeather.co.uk now provides the Forth Road Bridge wind speed graph for the past 24 hours, alongside our own station wind speed graphs. This will make it easier to compare the wind speeds on the Forth, along with the inland wind speeds at our Lochgelly weather station.
Please remember that the Forth Road Bridge deck-height puts it's anemometers at least 60 metres above the water's surface (tide dependent), which means the wind speeds will be significantly higher than measurements taken at the meteorological standard height of 10 metres above the ground. Therefore the Lochgelly station's wind speeds will always read significantly lower that those speeds recorded on the FRB, which can be quite impressive indeed!
The graphic is updated as frequently as the FRB systems publish the wind speed graph data, and we have no control over the quality or regularity of updates of the new graph. We hope you enjoy this new addition to the site.
