(any wind direction)

The rose diagram illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the strongest winds shown by the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 3110 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Frisco Pier/Cape Hatteras, located 28 km away (17 miles). There are insufficient 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 prevailing wind at Frisco Pier/Cape Hatteras blows from the S. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Frisco Pier/Cape Hatteras. Converseley, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more deep 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 (pale blue) about 3% of the time (1 days each May) and blows offshore just 12% of the time (1 days in an average May). In a typical May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Frisco Pier/Cape Hatteras
