This picture illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical February. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Hatteras Light House, located 25 km away (16 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 dominant wind at Hatteras Light House blows from the E. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Hatteras Light House. By contrast, 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 February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 4% of the time (1 days each February) and blows offshore just 14% of the time (4 days in an average February). In a typical February winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Hatteras Light House
