(any wind direction)

This chart illustrates how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 2696 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2008, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Folkestone, located 23 km away (14 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 dominant wind at Folkestone blows from the SW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Folkestone. On the other hand, dominant spokes show 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 May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 3% of the time (1 days each May) and blows offshore just 10% of the time (0 days in an average May). In a typical May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Folkestone
