(any wind direction)

This chart describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal December. The longest 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 2953 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Ardnave Point and Bay (Islay), located 18 km away (11 miles). There are insufficient 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 dominant wind at Ardnave Point and Bay (Islay) blows from the W. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Ardnave Point and Bay (Islay). On the other hand, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical December, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 3% of the time (1 days each December) and blows offshore just 42% of the time (9 days in an average December). Over an average December winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 13 days at Ardnave Point and Bay (Islay)
