(any wind direction)

The figure illustrates how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical February. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the darkest shade of blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to The Core, located 33 km away (21 miles). There are insufficient recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. No doubt some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the prevailing wind at The Core blows from the NE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at The Core. 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. Over an average February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 4% of the time (1 days each February) and blows offshore just 7% of the time (2 days in an average February). In a typical February winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at The Core
