(any wind direction)

This chart describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical April. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Gray Whale Cove, located 7 km away (4 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 Gray Whale Cove blows from the W. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Gray Whale Cove. 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 April, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 17% of the time (5 days each April) and blows offshore 19% of the time (6 days in an average April). During a typical April wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Gray Whale Cove
