Wind Direction

Dear Readers,
This is continuation with my earlier post “Wind Speeds”,. We may notice the direction during weather forecast in media.Now let us discuss about wind directions and the degrees. 

Wind direction is the directions from which the wind is blowing or the direction from which the air is moving. Wind Direction indicates the compass direction from which the wind is blowing. Wind direction is illustrating using degrees from true north (360o) to record direction.  The compass is divided into 360 degrees around the circle. The North position equals zero, and the degrees increase as you move around the compass clockwise until you reach 360 degrees back at the North position.

From the above picture on the compass below the letter N stands for North, S stands for South, E stands for East, and W stands for West. In order to be more specific, the letters NE are used for Northeast, SE for southeast, SW for Southwest and NW for Northwest. It is further divided NNE & ENE between first quarter. NNE stands for North Northeast and ENE stands for East Northeast. Please refer below table for abbreviation and the degrees.
