This image shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical January. The longest 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 deep blue. It is based on 2868 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to 4 Mile, located 30 km away (19 miles). There are too few 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 most common wind at 4 Mile blows from the WNW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at 4 Mile. By contrast, 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 January, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 18% of the time (6 days each January) and blows offshore 52% of the time (16 days in an average January). In a typical January wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at 4 Mile
