(any wind direction)

The rose diagram illustrates how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical March. The longest 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 the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 3460 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to The Ledge, located 14 km away (9 miles). There are too few 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 most common wind at The Ledge blows from the ENE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at The Ledge. By contrast, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more deep 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 (light blue) about 10% of the time (3 days each March) and blows offshore 39% of the time (12 days in an average March). During a typical March wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at The Ledge
