Northwesterly winds

Posted: 11 Jan 2010 06:11 AM

The featured chart is a wind rose presentation of observed winds from the Ames Airport for the past 31 days. Wind roses show the frequency of direction and magnitude of wind. The dominance of northwest flow can be seen and that is one of the reasons our weather has been so bitterly cold for the past month. Changes are expected this week with winds out of the southwest, which are usually warmer.

Good = 33
Bad = 6
