This picture shows how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical March. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates 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 Holden Beach, located 49 km away (30 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 dominant wind at Holden Beach blows from the S. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Holden Beach. 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 March, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 1.8% of the time (1 days each March) and blows offshore just 10% of the time (3 days in an average March). During a typical March winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at Holden Beach
