(any wind direction)

The rose diagram describes how often 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 suggests the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 3460 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Thurso Beach, located 45 km away (28 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 prevailing wind at Thurso Beach blows from the NW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Thurso Beach. Converseley, dominant spokes show 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 March, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 3% of the time (1 days each March) and blows offshore just 40% of the time (11 days in an average March). During a typical March winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 9 days at Thurso Beach
