(any wind direction)

The rose diagram shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical March. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 3460 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Tank Beach, located 33 km away (21 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 Tank Beach blows from the NE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Tank Beach. By contrast, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark 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 3% of the time (1 days each March) and blows offshore just 4% of the time (1 days in an average March). In a typical March winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Tank Beach
