(any wind direction)

The graph illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical December. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests 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 Derrynane, located 31 km away (19 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 Derrynane blows from the SW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Derrynane. On the other hand, 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 December, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 1.3% of the time (0 days each December) and blows offshore just 9% of the time (2 days in an average December). During a typical December winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 7 days at Derrynane
