(any wind direction)

This image shows how frequently 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 suggests the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 3347 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Margate Pier, located 35 km away (22 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 dominant wind at Margate Pier blows from the SE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Margate Pier. On the other hand, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more dark 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 (pale blue) about 6% of the time (2 days each November) and blows offshore 36% of the time (10 days in an average November). During a typical November winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at Margate Pier
