If the wind is from the north, the wind vane will point to the south. The wind vane is weighted so that the wind can swing it in the direction that it is going.
Wind vane or weather vane
a weather vane tells us the direction of the wind... Actually the weathervane arrow points to the direction from which the wind is coming.
A wind vane shows wind direction by pointing directly into the wind.
The weather vane indicated the direction of the wind was from the North.
This is a wind vane.
a Weather Vane
A weather vane is an instrument that is used to show the direction of the wind. These weather vanes are produced with equal weight on either side of a rotating axis with one side being larger. The arrow pointer of a weather vane will point in the direction that the wind is blowing.
Wind vanes point in the direction that the wind is coming from. As such, if the vane is pointing south then this is the direction the wind is coming from.
it points into the wind. wind direction is referenced so that if you face the direction the metiorologist says the wind is, it will hit you in the face. ie.. 10kts @ 040 (or north east), if you turn to the north east, the wind will be blowing in your face.

A windsock fills with the wind, and tells which direction that the wind is blowing. A wind vane also does the same thing as a wind sock. Both point in the direction opposite of where the wind is coming.

A chicken/rooster with N-E-S-W on it. Simplest wind direction indicator could be just a piece of string hanging from a nail. But... simplest wind *vane* would be a horizontal rod balanced at and freely rotating around a vertical axis. One end of the rod has a thin, stiff vertical vane wider than the rod. It looks like a side ways stick with a stiff up and down flap at one end, that sick is on top of an up and down stick which is close to the middle of the side ways stick. Wind pushes against the vane and turns the stick so the vane is in opposite direction from where wind is coming from. A wind vane can have other useful and decorative additions. The simplest is to paint the end or the vane so it can be seen easier. Many vanes look like an arrow with the vane with a shallow V shaped notch at its free end and an arrow head at the other end of rod, the head has to be smaller than the vane or the wind will push on it instead. The head and vane can be different colors. Below the arrow a horizontal non moving 4 armed cross with letters indicating the appropriate direction may be secured to the vertical support. Many vanes have a decorative feature on top of the horizontal rotating rod. The decoration is usually a thin vertical silhouette and has to be placed so as not to interfere with action of the vane. A rooster is a traditional and well known image but others are used, horse breeders may use a horse, dog breeders a dog, fishermen a fish etc. or some fanciful image with no real meaning can be used. The arrow shaped rod with a rooster on top and above the directional cross piece is the traditional stereotypical American wind vane. Some vanes have a propeller on one end as the wind catcher or a small one on end opposite the wind catcher. The smaller or arrow end of a vane points in the direction the wind is coming from and winds are named for that direction. A North wind comes from the North. An ill wind blows no one any good, can come from any direction and can rarely be identified by a wind vane in time to prepare for it anyway. I coulda saved a lot of time by telling you to go to Google Images. But I wouldn't have had as much fun trying to describe a windvane.
No, a weather vane shows wind direction.
