(any wind direction)

This picture shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 3192 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2008, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Whitecliff Bay, located 20 km away (12 miles). There are too few recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Without question some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the dominant wind at Whitecliff Bay blows from the SW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Whitecliff Bay. On the other hand, 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. Over an average May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 7% of the time (2 days each May) and blows offshore 44% of the time (2 days in an average May). During a typical May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Whitecliff Bay
