This is a wind rose I created using a python script I found on the internet. Plotted is wind data collected from my weather station from March 13, 2013 to July 9, 2013.

I admit the location of the weather station is not ideal--a residential area and sandwiched between two homes. Wind channeled between the homes is why winds generally blow in two directions.
During this time period, sustained winds above 10 mph were rare. If we looked at wind gusts we would see higher wind speeds. The highest gusts measured by my station during the period is 28 mph.
