This image describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the strongest winds shown by dark blue. It is based on 3440 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Ballston Beach, located 3 km away (2 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 dominant wind at Ballston Beach blows from the ENE. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Ballston Beach. On the other hand, dominant spokes show 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 4% of the time (1 days each May) and blows offshore just 15% of the time (4 days in an average May). During a typical May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Ballston Beach
