This image illustrates how often 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 suggests the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 2867 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Dunbar/Belhaven Bay, located 33 km away (21 miles). There are not enough recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Without question some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the most common wind at Dunbar/Belhaven Bay blows from the NE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Dunbar/Belhaven Bay. On the other hand, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of 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 3% of the time (1 days each January) and blows offshore just 18% of the time (2 days in an average January). During a typical January winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at Dunbar/Belhaven Bay
