(any wind direction)

The graph shows how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical April. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Garths Reef, located 33 km away (21 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 prevailing wind at Garths Reef blows from the WNW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Garths Reef. On the other hand, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average April, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 14% of the time (4 days each April) and blows offshore 59% of the time (12 days in an average April). In a typical April winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Garths Reef
