This picture illustrates how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical December. 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 dark blue. It is based on 3448 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Sponge bay, located 33 km away (21 miles). There are not enough 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 Sponge bay blows from the SSE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Sponge bay. On the other hand, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average December, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 8% of the time (2 days each December) and blows offshore 33% of the time (4 days in an average December). During a typical December wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Sponge bay
