Hi guys,
Ive been trying to implement a for-loop to plot graphs from a set data with each plot having 2 months in it, so the first plot would have all values from jan to feb and 2nd would have all values from march till april.
I also have been to trying to make the sets of data into 2 lines where the first is the plots for data constiting of jan to jun and the second line being data from jul to dec.
Thank you, any guidance would be appreciated

T.month = month(t.disc_TimeStamp);
tiledlayout(3,2)
for m = 1:2:12
monthMatch = any(T.month == [m m+1],2);
% or
% monthMatch = (T.month == m | T.month == m+1);
Tplot = T(monthMatch, :);
% polar plot
nexttile
polar(Tplot.mean_NacelleOrientation_Deg, Tplot.mean_WindSpeed_mps,'.')
end
This approach assumes you've just got one year of data (otherwise, you'll combine Jan-Feb 2019 and Jan-Feb 2020 into one plot). Then you would need multiple grouping variables - month and year.

You can proceed like below.
thedates = datevec(T.(1)) ;
% plot for Jan and Feb by getting indices of them
idx = thedates(:,2)==1 | thedates(:,2)==2 ;
% plot third column
plot(T.(1)(idx),T.(3)(idx))

Thank you for the feedback however my task requires me to use implent a for loop strusture when plotting, i also am using polar plots for the task
