(any wind direction)

This chart shows how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical March. The biggest 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 3460 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Richards Bay South Pier, located 22 km away (14 miles). There are too few 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 dominant wind at Richards Bay South Pier blows from the SSE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Richards Bay South Pier. By contrast, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average 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 11% of the time (3 days in an average March). In a typical March winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Richards Bay South Pier
