Winter wind paterns are generally out of the NW. Spring/early summer out of the SE. Later summer, just stagnant and hot .

Just went and checked the wind roses, and the above is not quite accurate. For individual months, check the following link from the TCEQ:
Wind Roses 1984 - 1992 - Texas Commission on Environmental Quality - www.tceq.state.tx.us

Note that the wind is most often out of the S/SE, but the strong winds are out of the N/NNW (cold fronts/storms)

For the annual average:

Just curious, why are you interested in the wind direction? Are you flying? Building a windmill?

I was planning to buy a house at that time. So, trying to decide on the house direction. Finally I bought a house which is facing N/NE. In the family room and breakfast I get sun whole day from dusk to dawn. Awesome! Summer sun will not come in directly through windows. I'm fine in winter as well as in summer. Also, nice breeze is coming into the house. When temp is in 70s, we open windows. Overall it worked out well.

If you have windows facing north and windows facing south you can get some awesome breezes through the house on nice days. Gives the house a nice "airing out".

It's not so much true that winds come from the south, it's more that Oklahoma sucks up north.
