This picture illustrates how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal May. The largest 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 2838 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to North Assateague (The Wedge), located 23 km away (14 miles). There are too few 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 most common wind at North Assateague (The Wedge) blows from the SE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at North Assateague (The Wedge). By contrast, 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. During a typical May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 9% of the time (3 days each May) and blows offshore 39% of the time (11 days in an average May). Over an average May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at North Assateague (The Wedge)
