360 Deg Wind Direction Website

Sadly i have lost the name of a website that showed me in a 360 deg graph the average number of days per month with the wind direction, I found it very useful.
My apologies for the poor description but does anybody out there firstly understand what I mean and also the web site.
Thanks.
Dave

Re: 360 deg wind direction website

That would be pilot charts.

Here's one example from NOAA. Drop down to a desired region, and chose a month of the year, etc.

These are in pdf format for download. But I'm sure there are online viewable versions.

Might try a google of "pilot charts online".

I use Windfinder a lot. Here's a wind rose for a spot on the Isle of Wight. You can poke around and find wind roses and seven day forecasts for other locations.

Good one Hud. I forgot to bookmark that site last time I saw it here. Got it this time.

Good graphic representation.
