(any wind direction)

This chart shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical March. The biggest 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 3460 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Hobe Sound/The Refuge, located 18 km away (11 miles). There are not enough 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 dominant wind at Hobe Sound/The Refuge blows from the NE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Hobe Sound/The Refuge. 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 March, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 6% of the time (2 days each March) and blows offshore 19% of the time (5 days in an average March). In a typical March winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 3 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Hobe Sound/The Refuge
