(any wind direction)

This picture illustrates how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical February. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the strongest winds shown by the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Richards Bay (Outside), located 24 km away (15 miles). There are not enough recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Without question some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the prevailing wind at Richards Bay (Outside) blows from the SSE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Richards Bay (Outside). 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 February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 5% of the time (1 days each February) and blows offshore 8% of the time (2 days in an average February). During a typical February winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Richards Bay (Outside)
