This image describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal April. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies 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 Mounts Bay (Penzance), located 14 km away (9 miles). There are too few 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 Mounts Bay (Penzance) blows from the SW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Mounts Bay (Penzance). On the other hand, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical April, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 3% of the time (1 days each April) and blows offshore just 9% of the time (1 days in an average April). Over an average April wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Mounts Bay (Penzance)
