(any wind direction)

The rose diagram shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical April. The biggest 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 3360 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Cattle Grid, located 19 km away (12 miles). There are too few 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 prevailing wind at Cattle Grid blows from the NE. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Cattle Grid. On the other hand, dominant spokes illustrate 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 April, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 5% of the time (2 days each April) and blows offshore 17% of the time (5 days in an average April). In a typical April wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Cattle Grid
