This picture describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical February. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 1128 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Folly Beach, located 19 km away (12 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 dominant wind at Folly Beach blows from the E. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Folly Beach. By contrast, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark 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 16% of the time (0 days in an average February). During a typical February winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 1 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Folly Beach
