Windless Season

There is no doubt that we live in an area that is prone to a persistent wind.  Our flat terrain, in combination with our geographic location in the middle latitudes where air mass exchanges are routine, the wind plays a strong role in our climate. The time frame with the lowest average wind speed is in July and August, particularly from the middle to July to the middle of August.  This time of year the temperature contrast from the equator to polar areas is the lowest of the year; this induces weaker storms to form and in turn fewer wind events.  It does not mean every day will be calm, but the days with gusts over 30 mph tend to be fewer.
