(any wind direction)

The graph describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal December. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the darkest shade of blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3448 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to La Chapelle, located 19 km away (12 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 prevailing wind at La Chapelle blows from the W. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at La Chapelle. 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 December, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 3% of the time (1 days each December) and blows offshore just 15% of the time (5 days in an average December). Over an average December winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 8 days at La Chapelle
