Station Situation

Moel Accre Wendy station is on the Clwydian Range, just to the Southeast of Ruthin, in North Wales. For detailed location, see the linked map.|OS Grid ref: SJ168533|Altitude: 1300ft (396m)

Interpreting Readings

The actual site at Moel Accre takes wind directions from WSW round through W to WNW , but the Wendy station is used to check the winds for other nearby hills, such as Moel Famau, which take other wind directions. The anemometer is approx 25 feet above ground level, and is in clear air for most directions. Because it is on the hill edge, it reads the "compression" or "venturi" windspeed on the edge itself, which may be higher in Westerlies than on other sites nearby. This site is also heavily influenced by Wave Doubling in Westerlies, due to atmospheric wave set off by the Snowdon massif to the west. This can again cause the station to experience winds that are much higher than other places on the same day. more...

Pilot Notes

The site is used by Hang Gliders, and Paragliders, who belong to the North Wales Hang Gliding and Paragliding Club, who should be contacted before flying a Hang or Paraglider in the area.
