(any wind direction)

The rose diagram describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal April. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Pin Cushion, located 43 km away (27 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 dominant wind at Pin Cushion blows from the ESE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Pin Cushion. On the other hand, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more dark 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 (pale blue) about 7% of the time (2 days each April) and blows offshore 14% of the time (4 days in an average April). Over an average April winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at Pin Cushion
