(any wind direction)

This picture describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal April. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3360 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Cow Bay, located 26 km away (16 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 Cow Bay blows from the ENE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Cow Bay. Converseley, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark 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 (light blue) about 0.7% of the time (0 days each April) and blows offshore just 7% of the time (2 days in an average April). Over an average April wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Cow Bay
