(any wind direction)

This picture shows how frequently 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 implies the strength, with dark blue strongest. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Penthievre, 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 most common wind at Penthievre blows from the W. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Penthievre. Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more deep 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 8% of the time (2 days each April) and blows offshore 35% of the time (10 days in an average April). During a typical April winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Penthievre
