1pm 11 Feb: The wind sensor is not functioning, and has been down since 1pm on the 10th. I will try to fix it this weekend
Update, 11pm 15 Feb: The sensor is not repairable for the foreseeable future (probably not until mid-2017). In its long absence, wind data is being served from a nearby weather station, Harpenden weather. All other sensors are currently working fine
