3) - the current averaged direction from 16 compass points.
4) - the current temperature and barometric pressure, both which have an effect on the the wind.
5+6+7) - plus 3 past Wind readings - from 15 minutes ago, from 30 minutes ago, from 45 minutes ago. These readings give you a feel of how the wind is developing or dropping.
Note the format
Average Speed - Average Direction - LO wind - HIGH Wind
High windspeeds must be considered for your safety. But the range of the windspeed is important for your safety and we are proud that we led the change to show you what the lowest speed in the same period is. This difference between the Lo and Hi windspeed allows you to see how GUSTY the wind conditions are. The more consistent the wind is, the more enjoyment you get out of the wind. Gusty conditions can be injurious to your health. It is also worth noting how much the direction is swinging backwards and forwards.
