(any wind direction)

The figure describes how often 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 dark blue. It is based on 3428 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Tam O'Shanter, located 6 km away (4 miles). There are insufficient 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 Tam O'Shanter blows from the NW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Tam O'Shanter. Converseley, 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. Over an average March, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 11% of the time (3 days each March) and blows offshore 26% of the time (5 days in an average March). In a typical March wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Tam O'Shanter
