In Cost Path option to add Horizontal Factors - How do I convert table to raster?

I want to add wind direction and strength to a cost distance surface.  The Help file show example of file with two columns - Direction in Degrees, and second value strength (which I assume would cover the full 360 degree azimuth).

 0    1.40     10   2.43     20   2.30     30   3.44     40   1.25     50   1.02     60   0.90     70   0.86     80   0.25     90   0.78     100  1.49     110  2.35     120  3.32     130  2.39     140  3.18     150  2.13     160  1.89     170  1.20     180  2.034

 

 

How do I create a raster surface which incorporates these two factors to create a friction surface?

Do you have to create a direction surface, Wind Strength surface and add them together?  

Is there a simple process to add all the friction costs together in one step?

 

Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.
