This image describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the strongest winds shown by dark blue. It is based on 3440 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Laggan Bay (Islay), located 25 km away (16 miles). There are not enough recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. No doubt some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the most common wind at Laggan Bay (Islay) blows from the WNW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Laggan Bay (Islay). Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 6% of the time (2 days each May) and blows offshore 23% of the time (0 days in an average May). In a typical May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Laggan Bay (Islay)
