(any wind direction)

This image illustrates 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 deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 2664 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to 47th Street, located 23 km away (14 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 47th Street blows from the ENE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at 47th Street. By contrast, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more deep 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 (the lightest shade of blue) about 1.8% of the time (1 days each February) and blows offshore just 9% of the time (0 days in an average February). Over an average February wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at 47th Street
