Past IEM Features tagged: apr17
April is in the books and is certainly went out on a cold, wet, and windy foot. The featured chart displays daily averaged wind speed and direction for Ames. The little arrow at the top of each bar represent the vector averaged wind direction. The averaged directions show a neat cyclic pattern as weather systems transverse the state during the month and wind directions respond in kind. It is also interesting to see that most of the windiest days came during the last half of April.
