I believe that the Waukegan meter is off +45 deg (approx), I started to observe this right after the meter has been fixed last year.
I have noticed multiple times that when the other meters in the area (i.e. Kenosha/Racine etc) were showing consistent directions Waukegan wasn't.
During the last summer I didn't ride in Waukegan at all but when finally got there this spring, after two sessions I had the confirmation of my thoughts.
A week ago I was riding on a straight onshore wind (ESE) when the meter was showing SE and yesterday afternoon between 3pm and 4pm we were riding a SSW but the meter was showing SW.
Hope this helps
Yesterday it was short but sweet for me, can't wait for another session!
