(any wind direction)

This picture illustrates how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 2838 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Doonloughan, located 25 km away (16 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 Doonloughan blows from the NW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Doonloughan. By contrast, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 2% of the time (1 days each May) and blows offshore just 10% of the time (3 days in an average May). In a typical May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Doonloughan
