This chart shows 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 indicates the strength, with dark 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 Fox River, located 32 km away (20 miles). There are insufficient recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. No doubt some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the prevailing wind at Fox River blows from the WSW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Fox River. 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 (pale blue) about 26% of the time (7 days each February) and blows offshore 34% of the time (6 days in an average February). In a typical February wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Fox River
