(any wind direction)

The graph illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical October. 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 3471 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Long Reef, located 32 km away (20 miles). There are insufficient 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 dominant wind at Long Reef blows from the SE. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Long Reef. Converseley, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average October, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 10% of the time (3 days each October) and blows offshore 23% of the time (7 days in an average October). In a typical October wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Long Reef
