You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows. You just need this interactive map.

Using wind speed data from the National Weather Service and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association, software engineer Cameron Beccario created this interactive graphic showing wind flow around the world. The global wind flows are updated every three hours and users can click on the globe to see wind speeds in different areas.
