This picture describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal February. 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 deep blue. It is based on 2664 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Forestry, located 37 km away (23 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 prevailing wind at Forestry blows from the NE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Forestry. By contrast, dominant spokes represent 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 11% of the time (3 days each February) and blows offshore 36% of the time (10 days in an average February). Over an average February winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Forestry
