Valley Microclimates

Today was a good example here for wind behavior in a valley on a typical fair weather day showing the reversal in direction( at least here , because the valley runs N.W.-S.E.) Opposite behavior at late evening. Night temps are generally lower as well on calm nights because of pooling of cooler air.



it does pick up the wind direction and speed very well for very light winds :slight_smile:

That’s one of the benefits of the sonic anemometer vs spinning cups: lower cut-in speed due to minimal inertia/friction.
