This image describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with dark blue strongest. It is based on 3192 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2008, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to West Wittering, located 31 km away (19 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 West Wittering blows from the SW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at West Wittering. 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. Over an average 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 12% of the time (0 days in an average May). During a typical May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at West Wittering
