(any wind direction)

This picture illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal May. 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 3440 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Boats, located 30 km away (19 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 most common wind at Boats blows from the SSE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Boats. By contrast, 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. During a typical May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 0.9% of the time (0 days each May) and blows offshore just 1.7% of the time (1 days in an average May). Over an average May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Boats
