The rose diagram illustrates how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical November. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 2867 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2008, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Machrihanish, located 18 km away (11 miles). There are too few 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 Machrihanish blows from the W. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Machrihanish. On the other hand, 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 November, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 5% of the time (2 days each November) and blows offshore 14% of the time (3 days in an average November). During a typical November winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 6 days at Machrihanish
