AbstractHodographs of resultant surface winds are presented for 6-hour intervals (0300, 0900,1500, and 2100 LST) for the three-year period (1980-1982) at stations on the Saudi Arabian coast. Strong diurnal wind variations are observed at all stations. The end point of the resultant wind vector usually turns clockwise. In some locations, they show anti-clockwise rotation during part of the day. Departures of these resultant winds from the average of all 4 resultant winds show downslope and offshore flow of winds during the night and part of the daytime, and strong onshore and upslope flow of winds at 1500 LST.
