All Swells

(any wind direction)

This image describes how frequently 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 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 Rockaway, located 12 km away (7 miles). There are too few 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 prevailing wind at Rockaway blows from the W. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Rockaway. 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 22% of the time (6 days each February) and blows offshore 36% of the time (10 days in an average February). During a typical February wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Rockaway
