(any wind direction)

The figure shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical February. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with dark 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 Cove, located 26 km away (16 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 most common wind at The Cove blows from the W. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at The Cove. By contrast, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more deep 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 (pale blue) about 9% of the time (3 days each February) and blows offshore 26% of the time (2 days in an average February). During a typical February winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 1 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at The Cove
