The originator of this record has set u and v equal to zero in
cases where the current speed was less than the instrument's stall
speed. Since speed and direction were not supplied, we have no way
of estimating direction when u and v both are zero. Here we have
arbitrarily set direction to zero when u and v are zero. This
condition occurs approximately 46% of the time in this file.
