45. Windrose

A windrose is a graphic that gives an overall analysis of the wind in a certain location. It shows a breakdown of the locations wind direction and speed. This is a windrose for the city of Fresno, California for the month of April and complies thirty years worth of data. From this graph you can see that the wind hardly ever blows from the northeast or southwest during the month of April, but does blow often and strongly from the northwest.
