We're planning our day for tomorrow and Dave and I are confused. Looking at the weather for tomorrow it says 9 knots WNW. Does that mean the wind is coming FROM WNW blowing ESE or is it blowing WNW?

Last weekend we thought we had it figured out but we were not correct so I want to be sure.

"Winds NNW" (or any direction) ALWAYS means the wind is coming from that direction. Another example: "Wind 270 at 10" means the wind is FROM due west at 10 knots. Clear as mud? No, really, you'll never forget that again.
