    Since we’ve been seeing weird spikes in the Crestline station readings, I added a bit of a filter to the graphs. Now, each reading gets compared to the reading previous. If either the wind speed or gust is over a threshold of our choosing (the delta between the current and previous reading), that reading is discarded as being bogus.

    I started out with that threshold being 50mph, but still saw quite a few days in the past with big spikes. Tried several others, and 35mph seemed like a reasonable value to use. If anyone notices anything funky going on with that, please feel free to let me know.
