Plot Description:

This chart presents the hourly average wind speeds by month of the year or by custom periods. The hours presented are valid in the local time zone of the reporting station. For example in Iowa, 3 PM would represent 3 PM CDT in the summer and 3 PM CST in the winter. Please complain to us if this logic causes you heartburn! The format of the date periods is two digit month followed by two digit day for both the start and end date.
