Plot Description:

This plot displays daily average wind speeds for a given year and month of your choice. These values are computed by the IEM using available observations. Some observation sites explicitly produce an average wind speed, but that is not considered for this plot. You can download daily summary data here. The average wind direction is computed by vector averaging of the wind speed and direction reports.

Based on a sampling of recent timings for this application, plot generation time has averaged 1 seconds. Hold on for the plot is generating now!
