Where are the wind maps?

Where can I find wind forecast maps months in advance?

I intend to do some bike touring soon. Wind can be a big deal for biking. I'd like to have a vague idea of the general wind direction I'll be facing when planning trips.

I assume any forecast this far in advance would actually be average data from previous years. I know the data exists, but I can't seem to find it plotted on a map.

Right now I'm looking for Oregon & Northern California in early September, but I'd like something broader. Ideally something like a google map with some arrows drawn over it and a selector for "month/day" or at least "season."

Weatherspark.com might work for this sort of thing, though I'm not sure how granular their dataset is.

The term you may have better luck with is "prevailing wind".

Weatherunderground.com has historical information if you drill down a bit. Don't look at the exact detail of specific days but the general trend at the time of year.
