Does a westerly wind come from the west or does it blow to the west?

When a wind is easterly, it blows from the east towards the west. However, when the wind is eastward, it blows from the west towards the east. The suffix is what determines the direction. "Ly" means from and "ward" means towards. From your example, I would say that the wind is coming FROM the north and blowing TOWARD the south.

What direction is NNW plus 90 degrees?

The direction NNW plus 90 degrees is ENE. ---------------------- NW is a bearing of 315 and NNW is a bearing of 337.5. Add 90 to this, and subtract 360 because we have "gone round": 337.5 + 90 = 427.5; 427.5 - 360 = 67.5. This is past NE, so the answer is ENE.
