Ames windrose for dates between 15-31 Jan 2007
Our recent stretch of cold weather is not because the Chicago Bears are in the Superbowl this weekend. It is a result of rather persistent northwest flow pumping cold air our way from Canada. No better way to illustrate how persistent than with a recent wind rose plot showing the dominate 3 directions being NNW, NW, and WNW.

Good = 30
Bad = 14
