The figure illustrates how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal May. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 2834 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Oase zur Sonne Westerland (Sylt), located 22 km away (14 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 Oase zur Sonne Westerland (Sylt) blows from the NW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Oase zur Sonne Westerland (Sylt). By contrast, dominant spokes represent 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 (light blue) about 7% of the time (2 days each May) and blows offshore 16% of the time (2 days in an average May). Over an average May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Oase zur Sonne Westerland (Sylt)
