(any wind direction)

The rose diagram describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with dark blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 2838 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to East Pier (Port Alfred), located 45 km away (28 miles). There are too few 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 East Pier (Port Alfred) blows from the SSW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at East Pier (Port Alfred). Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 9% of the time (3 days each May) and blows offshore 48% of the time (15 days in an average May). During a typical May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 5 days at East Pier (Port Alfred)
