(any wind direction)

This chart shows 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 implies the strength, with the darkest shade of blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 1228 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to The Washout, located 22 km away (14 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 dominant wind at The Washout blows from the SE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at The Washout. By contrast, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark 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 7% of the time (2 days each March) and blows offshore 22% of the time (6 days in an average March). In a typical March wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at The Washout
