(any wind direction)

The graph shows how frequently 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 indicates 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 Flagpoles, located 22 km away (14 miles). There are insufficient 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 dominant wind at Flagpoles blows from the NE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Flagpoles. Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate 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 7% of the time (2 days each February) and blows offshore 21% of the time (1 days in an average February). During a typical February winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 2 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Flagpoles
