This picture illustrates how commonly 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 indicates the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 3119 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to The Pier, located 21 km away (13 miles). There are insufficient 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 Pier blows from the ENE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at The Pier. Converseley, dominant spokes represent 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 February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 1.6% of the time (0 days each February) and blows offshore just 8% of the time (2 days in an average February). In a typical February winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 1 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at The Pier
