(any wind direction)

The graph shows how frequently 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 implies the strength, with the darkest shade of 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 Japs, located 10 km away (6 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 prevailing wind at Japs blows from the SSW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Japs. By contrast, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more deep 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 (pale blue) about 10% of the time (3 days each February) and blows offshore 18% of the time (5 days in an average February). Over an average February wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Japs
