(any wind direction)

The figure shows how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal 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 dark blue. It is based on 3460 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to The Cove, located 25 km away (16 miles). There are too few recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Without question some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the prevailing wind at The Cove 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 Cove. By contrast, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical March, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 6% of the time (2 days each March) and blows offshore 17% of the time (1 days in an average March). Over an average March winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 3 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at The Cove
