This image shows how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal February. The longest 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 deep blue. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Thicklip, located 57 km away (35 miles). There are not enough 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 dominant wind at Thicklip blows from the SW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Thicklip. By contrast, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of 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 (pale blue) about 15% of the time (4 days each February) and blows offshore 16% of the time (4 days in an average February). Over an average February winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 2 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Thicklip
