This picture describes 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 implies the strength, with the darkest shade of blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 2888 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Frenchmans Reef, located 55 km away (34 miles). There are not enough 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 dominant wind at Frenchmans Reef blows from the SE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Frenchmans Reef. 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 (light blue) about 5% of the time (1 days each February) and blows offshore 8% of the time (2 days in an average February). Over an average February winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Frenchmans Reef
