(any wind direction)

The rose diagram shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical March. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the strongest winds shown by the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 2964 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2009, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to The Glen, located 22 km away (14 miles). There are not enough 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 most common wind at The Glen blows from the NW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at The Glen. On the other hand, dominant spokes show 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 March, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 16% of the time (5 days each March) and blows offshore 29% of the time (3 days in an average March). During a typical March wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at The Glen
