Hello folks,

Can someone briefly explain to me how to symbolize two fields of wind speed and wind direction using the wind barbs in the weather or meteorological reference styles?

Not sure how to make it ingest two fields at once to show speed and direction on one symbol.  Also, how do you make ArcMap round the values?  In other words, the barbs are symbols for every 5 kts.  What will ArcMap do if your values are not on 5 kt increments? 

Thanks Guys
