(any wind direction)

The graph illustrates how frequently 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 strongest winds shown by deep blue. It is based on 3460 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to The Breakwater-St Ives, located 31 km away (19 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 prevailing wind at The Breakwater-St Ives blows from the WNW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at The Breakwater-St Ives. By contrast, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more deep 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 (light blue) about 5% of the time (2 days each March) and blows offshore 27% of the time (7 days in an average March). During a typical March winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 6 days at The Breakwater-St Ives
