The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 2784 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Omaha Beach and Bar, located 27 km away (17 miles).
