If the wind is reported as 360T, it's coming from the North. If the current (set) is reported as 360T, it's going to the North. Who decided this, and was it done just to torture me?
I also have the same question and just suppose that it's just convention. Much like a circuit diagram in EE where electrical current is shown going from the positive to the negative post whereas in reality the electrons flow from negative to postive. Not sure how all this "conventional wisdom" got started.
