How Does Weather Forecasting Work?
Forecasts were originally based on past observation, but modern weather science makes ample use of technology. Large amounts of weather data are collected from multiple sources and processed by supercomputers. The data sources include weather stations, satellites, sea buoys, even airplanes and ships. All weather variables that can be measured are useful when forecasting - air temperature, wind speed, wind direction, relative humidity, atmospheric pressure, etc.

Using Wind Monitoring to Apply Building Codes
Structural designs become more challenging when many tall buildings are close together. Since buildings change wind patterns around them, they can affect the loads experienced by neighboring properties. Therefore, any building design must consider the effect of other structures - not only the existing ones, but also simultaneous constructions and future projects.
