This document concerns the validity of wind direction data. After examining the records of wind data taken at X-10 for the period January 1946 to March 1949, it appears that the validity of a portion of the wind direction data is questionable. This seems to have been caused by the failure or partial failure of the North contact on the wind vane. Calculations, results and annual wind roses of direction and velocity for 1947 and 1948 are included.
