This chart describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical February. The biggest 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 2664 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Fenwick, located 5 km away (3 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 most common wind at Fenwick blows from the SSE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Fenwick. On the other hand, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average 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 27% of the time (6 days in an average February). During a typical February winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Fenwick
