Measuring wind direction and velocity has fascinated man for centuries. most weather vanes indicate and measure winds that blow in only one direction at a time.
These traditional weather vanes are alright out on the prairies, where winds generally blow in only one direction at a time, but in modern cities the traditional weather vane is obsolete.
In most cities, buildings are built in extremely close proximity, causing updrafts, backdrafts and circular flows that occur simultaneously. The revolutionary universal weather vane has the ability to indicate and measure these conflicting wind patterns. It is based on the scientific principle of POINTING DIRECTIONS. simply stated, the universal weather vane points in many directions at the same time.
