(any wind direction)

This image illustrates how often 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 implies the strength, with the strongest winds shown by the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Biarritz - Grande Plage, located 36 km away (22 miles). There are not enough recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. No doubt some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the prevailing wind at Biarritz - Grande Plage blows from the WNW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Biarritz - Grande Plage. 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 April, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 18% of the time (5 days each April) and blows offshore 35% of the time (10 days in an average April). In a typical April wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Biarritz - Grande Plage
