(any wind direction)

The figure describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal March. The longest 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 3460 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Reef Road, located 27 km away (17 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 most common wind at Reef Road blows from the NE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Reef Road. By contrast, 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 March, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 6% of the time (2 days each March) and blows offshore 19% of the time (1 days in an average March). Over an average March winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 3 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Reef Road
