(any wind direction)

The graph shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical April. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with dark blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Penhale, located 28 km away (17 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 dominant wind at Penhale blows from the W. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Penhale. By contrast, 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 April, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 8% of the time (2 days each April) and blows offshore 31% of the time (9 days in an average April). In a typical April winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at Penhale
