(any wind direction)

The figure describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal February. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to The Guillotine, located 35 km away (22 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 dominant wind at The Guillotine blows from the WSW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at The Guillotine. On the other hand, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 3% of the time (1 days each February) and blows offshore just 27% of the time (8 days in an average February). Over an average February winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at The Guillotine
