  1. Credit: David Babb. On a station model, reading the temperature is pretty easy. The number located in the upper-left corner of the model is the station temperature expressed in degrees Fahrenheit (or Celsius, depending on the country of origin). In the case of the station model on the right, the temperature is 52 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. May 12, 2022 · The wind speed is determined by adding up the total of flags, lines, and half-lines, each of which have the following individual values: Flag: 50 kts. Line: 10 kts. Half-Line: 5 kts. If there is only a circle depicted over the station with no wind symbol present, the wind is calm. Below are some sample wind symbols: PRESSURE.

    • Temperature. I think the model temperature is pretty self-explanatory. This is the temperature at the time of the observation or at the last update.
    • Wind Speed and Direction. I think this is the most fun symbol on a station plot. Wind is indicated with a flag-shaped pattern. The direction the flag comes into the center circle is the direction the wind is going.
    • Pressure. The sea-level pressure show is in tenths of millibars (mb), however the first digit or two is always left off. It will always be a 9 or 10 in front of the 3 digits, whichever gets the number closer to 1000.
    • Sky/Cloud Cover. The center circle is the location of the observation, but the symbol itself also indicates what kind of sky cover was present during the observation.

  5. In meteorology, station models are symbolic illustrations showing the weather occurring at a given reporting station. Meteorologists created the station model to fit a number of weather elements into a small space on weather maps. This allows map users to analyze patterns in atmospheric pressure, temperature, wind speed and direction, cloud ...
