This image illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal September. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the strongest winds shown by the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 3360 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Poul Rodou, located 36 km away (22 miles). There are not enough 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 Poul Rodou blows from the WNW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Poul Rodou. By contrast, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical September, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 6% of the time (2 days each September) and blows offshore 47% of the time (14 days in an average September). Over an average September winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Poul Rodou
