It is shown that directional distribution of moderate and strong winds in the Baltic Sea area is highly anisotropic. The dominating wind direction is southwest and a secondary peak corresponds to north winds. Northwest storms are relatively infrequent and northeast storms are extremely rare. Angular distributions of moderate and strong winds are identical on both sides of the Baltic Sea. The specific wind regime does not penetrate into mainland.
