(any wind direction)

The rose diagram illustrates how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal May. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the darkest shade of blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3440 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Black Rock, located 23 km away (14 miles). There are insufficient 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 most common wind at Black Rock blows from the WSW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Black Rock. On the other hand, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more deep 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 15% of the time (5 days each May) and blows offshore 29% of the time (0 days in an average May). Over an average May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Black Rock
