(any wind direction)

The rose diagram describes how commonly 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 indicates the strength, with the strongest winds shown by the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 2664 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Newcastle - The Wedge, located 21 km away (13 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 Newcastle - The Wedge blows from the E. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Newcastle - The Wedge. By contrast, dominant spokes represent 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 6% of the time (2 days each February) and blows offshore 10% of the time (3 days in an average February). Over an average February wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Newcastle - The Wedge
