New wind rose tool for North Carolina

A wind rose is a diagram that displays the frequency of winds from different directions in a wheel-shaped graph. The North Carolina State Climate Office noted this week that they have a new tool to generate wind roses for weather stations around the state. This information can be used for air quality, controlled burns, severe weather, and other weather and climate needs. You can find it at https://airquality.climate.ncsu.edu/wind/. If you are looking for wind roses in other parts of the Southeast, I like to use the wind rose tool on the Midwestern Regional Climate Center’s website at https://mrcc.purdue.edu/CLIMATE/. You do need to sign up for a free account, but then can generate wind roses for any hourly station in the country.
