This chart describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical April. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 2879 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Palmer Cove, located 37 km away (23 miles). There are not enough recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Invevitably some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the prevailing wind at Palmer Cove blows from the NNE. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Palmer Cove. By contrast, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of 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 3% of the time (1 days each April) and blows offshore just 11% of the time (0 days in an average April). In a typical April wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Palmer Cove
