(any wind direction)

This image shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical April. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with dark blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 2880 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Donut Island, located 26 km away (16 miles). There are not enough 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 dominant wind at Donut Island blows from the ENE. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Donut Island. By contrast, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average April, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 12% of the time (4 days each April) and blows offshore 35% of the time (9 days in an average April). In a typical April wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Donut Island
