(any wind direction)

This picture illustrates 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 suggests the strength, with the darkest shade of blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3360 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Grim Ness, located 29 km away (18 miles). There are insufficient 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 Grim Ness blows from the NE. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Grim Ness. Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more dark 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 (light blue) about 3% of the time (1 days each April) and blows offshore just 10% of the time (3 days in an average April). In a typical April winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Grim Ness
