Which way is the wind blowing?

The East vs West discussion usually revolves around the wind direction. If you want information overload on this, take a look at "http://www5.ncdc.noaa.gov/documentlibrary/pdf/wind1996.pdf".

Does anyone know of a better source of information?

Windroses are graphical plots of average wind direction and velocity at specified locations.  The plots show the percent of time winds are from each direction and also the wind speed by percent of time.  The following website, http://www.wcc.nrcs.usda.gov/climate/windrose.html, provides windroses for sites in every state by month.

For some reason,clicking on the link to windroses in the previous message results in an error message page.  Typing "windrose" in the search keyword block on that page will provide a page with a link to the windroses.
