(any wind direction)

The rose diagram describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical April. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3360 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Mombasa Channel, located 37 km away (23 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 Mombasa Channel blows from the ESE. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Mombasa Channel. By contrast, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average April, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 5% of the time (2 days each April) and blows offshore 10% of the time (3 days in an average April). During a typical April winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 3 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Mombasa Channel
