Short of that its already been done
Your post is a Fail. So you are suggesting turning something intended to be simple and easy into something complex? How many launch spots are there where you can pull your car right up to the beach? So you need anywhere from 100M of cable and an extension pole to plant into the ground to elevate the anemometer high enough to get decent wind. So your iPhone is locked in your car yet someone can run off with the rest of the gear you are implying is needed to make this a viable product? And on top of that you want to continuously broadcast wind conditions? So when you get to your locked car your phone is dead and your data charges are through the roof because you were in an area where data charges applied. Yeah...you really put some thought into your great idea.
