The graph describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical April. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the strongest winds shown by deep blue. It is based on 2880 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Dover Beach, located 10 km away (6 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 most common wind at Dover Beach blows from the N. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Dover Beach. 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. Over an average April, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 0% of the time (0 days each April) and blows offshore just 0% of the time (0 days in an average April). In a typical April winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 0 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Dover Beach
