The figure shows how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal February. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 2664 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Fairy Meadow, located 9 km away (6 miles). There are too few recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Invevitably some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the prevailing wind at Fairy Meadow blows from the SE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Fairy Meadow. On the other hand, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical February, 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 February) and blows offshore 15% of the time (4 days in an average February). Over an average February winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 2 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Fairy Meadow
