This picture illustrates how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical February. The largest 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 deep blue. It is based on 2664 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Nicks Point, located 32 km away (20 miles). There are too few 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 prevailing wind at Nicks Point blows from the WSW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Nicks Point. On the other hand, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 14% of the time (4 days each February) and blows offshore 40% of the time (11 days in an average February). During a typical February winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 4 days at Nicks Point
