(any wind direction)

The graph describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical April. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with dark blue strongest. It is based on 3119 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Gileston, located 43 km away (27 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 Gileston blows from the WSW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Gileston. By contrast, dominant spokes illustrate 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 April, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 14% of the time (4 days each April) and blows offshore 32% of the time (0 days in an average April). During a typical April wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Gileston
