The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 2838 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Newcastle - The Wedge, located 21 km away (13 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 prevailing wind at Newcastle - The Wedge blows from the E. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Newcastle - The Wedge. 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 May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Newcastle - The Wedge
