    The windspeed in Argentine stations (Aeroparque Aerodrome) is reported in kt.
    Enter value en WW is in mph.

    You can change the wind units in the "Conversion" section of the Weather Watcher Live Options window.

    I wrote to you about a year ago regarding the wind speed conversions (km/hr) being too analytical i.e. to one or two places of decimals. As a retired airline captain wind speeds are given in all meteorological reports in whole units. Can the programme be amended to show this; taking the integer of the conversion or rounding to the nearest whole unit should be a fairly simple amendment compared to some of the more complex you make to WW.

    Philiples, Weather Underground is showing the wind with one decimal place:

    The Weather Channel and AccuWeather seem to be rounding to a whole number though.

    It seems either is acceptable -- with rounding being the most common. It should be a fairly simple change. I'll look into it and get back to you.

    Philiples, in the build below, I added a "Round wind speed to nearest whole number" setting in the "Advanced" section of the Weather Watcher Live Options window. You can install this update over top of your existing version of Weather Watcher Live. Please give it a try and let me know if it accomplishes what you had in mind.
