(any wind direction)

This chart shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal February. The biggest 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 dark blue. It is based on 2663 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Fire Island, located 28 km away (17 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 dominant wind at Fire Island blows from the SE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Fire Island. By contrast, dominant spokes illustrate 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 (pale blue) about 4% of the time (1 days each February) and blows offshore just 29% of the time (8 days in an average February). Over an average February winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at Fire Island
