(any wind direction)

This chart illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical October. 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 2480 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2008, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Cap Gris Nez, located 16 km away (10 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 Cap Gris Nez blows from the NW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Cap Gris Nez. On the other hand, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average October, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 1.1% of the time (0 days each October) and blows offshore just 2% of the time (0 days in an average October). In a typical October winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 2 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Cap Gris Nez
