(any wind direction)

The rose diagram shows how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal February. 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 Houghton Bay, located 29 km away (18 miles). There are too few 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 Houghton Bay blows from the S. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Houghton Bay. On the other hand, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 8% of the time (2 days each February) and blows offshore 27% of the time (7 days in an average February). Over an average February winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Houghton Bay
