This image illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal April. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with dark blue strongest. It is based on 3360 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Cat Bay (Shelly Beach), located 12 km away (7 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 Cat Bay (Shelly Beach) blows from the SW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Cat Bay (Shelly Beach). Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical April, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 14% of the time (4 days each April) and blows offshore 39% of the time (1 days in an average April). Over an average April wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Cat Bay (Shelly Beach)
