I would like to make a wind rose for a particular site but I can not get the raw data to do so. The included charts are not the easiest to read and the data is not included in the weather history table at the bottom of the stations page.

I want wind direction in degrees for entire months. There is some information on direction but only for specific days and they are not numerical. This is the station I'm looking at.

We don't have a way of getting wind direction for an entire month in a single call, but you could use a history call and get the data for the previous month, parse it appropriately, and use that for your wind rose:
