Better wind instruments I live in Leroy NY u say 0 mph wind. My trees bent over local weather says 20 mph winds. Terrible!!!

        To my knowledge Wunderground does not own or operate any weather stations.

        U.S. current conditions data comes from over 42,000 weather stations across the country including:

        "Almost 2,000 Automated Surface Observation System (ASOS) stations located at airports throughout the country. These are maintained by the Federal Aviation Administration and observations are updated hourly, or more frequently when adverse weather affecting aviation occurs (low visibility, precipitation, etc).
        Over 16,000 Personal Weather Stations (PWS's) that are part of Weather Underground's ever-expanding PWS network. Stations are put through strict quality controls and observations are updated as often as every 2.5 seconds.
        Over 26,000 weather stations that are part of the Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System (MADIS) which is managed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). For further information, see http://madis.noaa.gov/.
        When a visitor requests current conditions from wunderground.com, the geographically closest station is displayed. There is also a Station Select button, which shows a list of the next closest stations."

        So to tell WU to get better equipment isn't really an option. Hopefully someone , or even yourself, will invest in a quality weather station and provide accut rate and meaningful weather reports.
        You can go to the section on this site "Personal Weather Stations" and check out the insturments available.

        It would be nice if the people running this weather website would get it SOONER rather than LATER. How much negative feed back to you need to understand we the people find your weather site inaccurate and unreliable. It only weather with todays technology how hard can it be!!!???
        Get new instruments or new people,
