November 20, 2015—Observed Average Wind Speed Now Available

Moving forward, our development teams will be focused on small, quick releases for the API platform. Today we've released a simple new data point: average wind speed in the Weather Observations API and Weather Norms API. The new data point fits into the existing design like any other data point, and as part of the Norms API can be averaged over any number of years. This will be especially useful for those who need to compare windy versus non-windy days and for those who do their own evapotranspiration modeling.

Note that this average wind speed value is the same data point we use in our PET equations in the Agronomic Values API.
