    I am building a couple ground blinds and wonder what wind direction usually come when it's raining/snowing?

    Last year there were alot of E (NE/SE too) when it rained.

    Just curious so I put them in a location that they will be used.

    Thanks!

    Fall storms usually produce an east or southeast, or northeast, wind, followed by a north or northwest cooler breeze. Last couple Falls have been one storm after another and you are right,,,alot of east winds. A warm dry weather pattern brings west and southwest wind flow. Somehting rare last couple yrs, even in the summer!

    Thanks! So if you were to put a permanent ground blind out for days when it's raining/snowing, would you place it to work for an easterly wind?

    Thanks!!!!!!

    More than likely,,yes an east,SE,orNE, wind usually accompanies precip in the fall, and winter.

    If you are hunting late season at all over a picked cornfield or standing bean field or something I would really think about putting something in for a north northwest wind because if you are hunting druring late dec early jan a blind with a little heater makes it a lot easier to sit out.

    I agree with this, it sure seems like we have had plenty of easterly winds to deal with the last couple of falls.
