(any wind direction)

The rose diagram describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical January. The largest 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 3364 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Chincoteague, located 30 km away (19 miles). There are not enough 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 Chincoteague blows from the SE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Chincoteague. By contrast, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average January, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 3% of the time (1 days each January) and blows offshore just 25% of the time (7 days in an average January). In a typical January winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Chincoteague
