What time of day is the wind usually the lightest...and is it seasonal?

For light wind, we generally need little or no movement of pressure systems (highs, lows) or very limited change in such systems. If those circumstances are met...early evening or dawn tend to experience the lightest winds. There is a seasonal tendency toward light winds, especially during the early to mid autumn months.
