(any wind direction)

This chart illustrates how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal 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 showing the strongest winds. It is based on 2944 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Forrest Caves (Phillip Island), located 27 km away (17 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 Forrest Caves (Phillip Island) blows from the SW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Forrest Caves (Phillip Island). Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 12% of the time (4 days each May) and blows offshore 36% of the time (3 days in an average May). Over an average May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at Forrest Caves (Phillip Island)
