(any wind direction)

The figure describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal September. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with dark blue strongest. It is based on 2880 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Farm, located 3 km away (2 miles). There are insufficient 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 prevailing wind at Farm blows from the SW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Farm. On the other hand, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical September, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 8% of the time (2 days each September) and blows offshore 56% of the time (7 days in an average September). Over an average September winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at Farm
