The figure illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal February. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Ruggles, located 25 km away (16 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 dominant wind at Ruggles blows from the SSE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Ruggles. By contrast, dominant spokes represent 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 February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 4% of the time (1 days each February) and blows offshore just 24% of the time (2 days in an average February). Over an average February wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Ruggles
