(any wind direction)

This chart shows how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal May. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 2838 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to East End and The Gap, located 9 km away (6 miles). There are not enough 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 East End and The Gap blows from the W. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at East End and The Gap. By contrast, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 11% of the time (3 days each May) and blows offshore 34% of the time (7 days in an average May). Over an average May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at East End and The Gap
