(any wind direction)

This picture describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 2838 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to East Beach Lighthouse, located 36 km away (22 miles). There are too few 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 most common wind at East Beach Lighthouse blows from the SE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at East Beach Lighthouse. By contrast, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of 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 (the lightest shade of blue) about 6% of the time (2 days each May) and blows offshore 23% of the time (6 days in an average May). During a typical May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at East Beach Lighthouse
