(any wind direction)

This chart describes how frequently 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 implies the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 2664 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to North Jetty (Hikkaduwa), located 28 km away (17 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 North Jetty (Hikkaduwa) blows from the SSW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at North Jetty (Hikkaduwa). On the other hand, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more dark 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 (the lightest shade of blue) about 52% of the time (15 days each February) and blows offshore 67% of the time (19 days in an average February). During a typical February winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 0 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at North Jetty (Hikkaduwa)
