This image describes how commonly 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 indicates the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 2868 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Doc Browns, located 20 km away (12 miles). There are too few 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 Doc Browns blows from the ESE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Doc Browns. Converseley, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more deep 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 (light blue) about 5% of the time (2 days each January) and blows offshore 23% of the time (1 days in an average January). During a typical January winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Doc Browns
