(any wind direction)

This chart shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal May. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the strongest winds shown by deep blue. It is based on 2838 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Elim, located 21 km away (13 miles). There are too few recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Without question some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the prevailing wind at Elim blows from the SE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Elim. Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate 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 (pale blue) about 16% of the time (5 days each May) and blows offshore 58% of the time (18 days in an average May). Over an average May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Elim
