This image illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal January. The biggest 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 showing the strongest winds. It is based on 2862 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Fort Walton Beach, located 43 km away (27 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 prevailing wind at Fort Walton Beach blows from the SSW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Fort Walton Beach. On the other hand, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical January, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 3% of the time (1 days each January) and blows offshore just 14% of the time (3 days in an average January). Over an average January winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Fort Walton Beach
