This picture describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical January. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the strongest winds shown by the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 2868 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Feall Bay (Coll), located 15 km away (9 miles). There are not enough 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 Feall Bay (Coll) blows from the NNW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Feall Bay (Coll). On the other hand, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average January, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 0.2% of the time (0 days each January) and blows offshore just 0.3% of the time (0 days in an average January). In a typical January wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Feall Bay (Coll)
