(any wind direction)

This picture illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal December. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the darkest shade of blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 2953 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Dalmore Bay (Lewis), located 26 km away (16 miles). There are insufficient 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 Dalmore Bay (Lewis) blows from the WNW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Dalmore Bay (Lewis). On the other hand, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical December, 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 December) and blows offshore just 14% of the time (4 days in an average December). Over an average December winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 12 days at Dalmore Bay (Lewis)
