I don't think it makes much difference. A lot of the blowing rainy weather here in western PA comes out of the south and west. A lot of the snow comes out of the north. Long lingering rains come out of the east. Take your pick.

Although the question is a little late as I am just about finished the ridge on my garage I was wondering if there is any consensus on which side a saddle ridge should be started in realation to the areas prevalent weather patterns. On my garage I started the ridge at the north side of the roof and after looking at it realized that the ridge may be more "weathertight" if I would have stated it on the south side (here in northwest PA the wind, rain, snow etc usually comes from the North and West). I am not too worried about it as I did adequately flash the ridge per the instructions found here on SRC and gave the peak a good bead of GE silicone II caulking but was wondering if the direction it is laid makes any great difference as far as weather tightness. I have included a photo below (borrowed from the web site...not of my garage) to illustrate my question more clearly.
Thanks for any suggestions or input,
