MIKE MOSS SAYS: Sarah, The general protocol for wind direction in weather observations and forecasts is for the wind direction to indicate where the wind id blowing from. So a northeasterly wind blows from the northeast, and so on. As an example, a helium balloon released in a southeasterly wind will travel toward the northwest.
