magnitude indicator like the length of the needle would work.

Why not leave the length of the needle as fixed, and use either:

   (a) the colour, or
   (b) the number of decoration (e.g. arrowheads)
       ASCII graphics won't show much, but here goes -
       -------> gentle breeze
       --->>>>> gale

for speed? FWIW, I think there is a type of wind speed/direction map 
that uses a grid of small needles with varying numbers of half 
arrowheads to show strength.  I can't dig up an example at the moment
