Wind Check v. Instant Wind

Well, I usually get the "instant wind" from the LLWAS or low level wind shear alert system however, alot of facilities use there status information board to read the wind which display's a two minute average of what the wind has been. Some facitlities will not have the LLWAS system so you either get to hear them read the digitail two minute average or have them read what is on the old school anolog gauge but those aren't very accurate. The two minute average is good enough.
