This picture shows how often 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 the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 2880 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Croyde Reef, located 23 km away (14 miles). There are not enough recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Without question some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the dominant wind at Croyde Reef blows from the W. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Croyde Reef. On the other hand, dominant spokes represent 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 10% of the time (3 days each April) and blows offshore 32% of the time (8 days in an average April). Over an average April wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Croyde Reef
