I looked at your sketches and I think they are a good start, but it would be helpful to include more specifics on the elements. Many of the elements are labled "content" and I think a bit more information would help me to visualize what the site will be in its finished form if it said something more about what the content of that space would be. It doesn't need to be detailed, but if it was something like "wind information" or "city name" or "city image" at least that would help to know what type of content to expect would go there.
