(any wind direction)

The rose diagram describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal February. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with dark blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 2664 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Falmouth - Swanpool, located 16 km away (10 miles). There are insufficient 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 most common wind at Falmouth - Swanpool blows from the WSW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Falmouth - Swanpool. On the other hand, 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 February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 4% of the time (1 days each February) and blows offshore just 38% of the time (8 days in an average February). Over an average February winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 6 days at Falmouth - Swanpool
