This chart illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal August. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the strongest winds shown by the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 2976 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Exotics, located 35 km away (22 miles). There are insufficient 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 Exotics blows from the SSW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Exotics. Converseley, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical August, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 4% of the time (1 days each August) and blows offshore just 4% of the time (1 days in an average August). Over an average August winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 3 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Exotics
