Wind

I do not like wind.
It blows my hair behind my glasses and into my eyes. It gives me earaches. It hurls things into my face. That is why I really love this weather site. I know I have mentioned the site before (here) , but I didn’t get to brag about the wind information the site has.
The following is information for Kingman, AZ
TMI?

Wind

Over the course of the year typical wind speeds vary from 0 mph to 22 mph (calm to fresh breeze), rarely exceeding 29 mph (strong breeze).

The highest average wind speed of 11 mph (gentle breeze) occurs around June 14, at which time the average daily maximum wind speed is 22 mph (fresh breeze).

The lowest average wind speed of 7 mph (light breeze) occurs around January 5, at which time the average daily maximum wind speed is 13 mph (moderate breeze).

Wind Speed

The average daily minimum (red), maximum (green), and average (black) wind speed with percentile bands (inner band from 25th to 75th percentile, outer band from 10th to 90th percentile).

The wind is most often out of the south west (23% of the time), south (17% of the time), south east (13% of the time), north (11% of the time), and east (11% of the time). The wind is least often out of the north west (3% of the time) and north east (5% of the time).

Wind Directions Over the Entire Year

The fraction of time spent with the wind blowing from the various directions over the entire year. Values do not sum to 100% because the wind direction is undefined when the wind speed is zero.

Fraction of Time Spent with Various Wind Directions

The fraction of time spent with the wind blowing from the various directions on a daily basis. Stacked values do not always sum to 100% because the wind direction is undefined when the wind speed is zero.
