Wind Flow Charts for regions around the World

These charts show the direction the wind is blowing with the colour of the line representing the wind strength. For small regions we show this as a wind arrow while for larger areas we show flow lines. Flow lines or streamlines as there are better known are particularly useful in tropical areas where winds do not always look as organised as we are used to at higher latitudes. Remember these are the average wind speeds over the 3 hour period and are not maximum values or gusts which will be higher.
