(any wind direction)

This picture illustrates how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal October. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3471 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to ADs/Doubles, located 28 km away (17 miles). There are insufficient recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. No doubt some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the dominant wind at ADs/Doubles blows from the ENE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at ADs/Doubles. By contrast, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical October, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 2.0% of the time (1 days each October) and blows offshore just 2% of the time (1 days in an average October). Over an average October winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at ADs/Doubles
