Preferred direction for cross-US tour?

I have to go to Washington DC 2 or 3 times per year, including this coming June. I live on the West Coast. So it would be comparatively easy to fly to DC and bike back in June, but I am worried about the head-winds.

The longest tour I have done is down the West Coast (many years ago). In that case, it is very ill-advised to go South to North.

Is it a similar situation for riding East to West, vs. West to East, given the prevailing winds?
