The graph describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal January. 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 3364 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Vanthrax, located 24 km away (15 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 Vanthrax blows from the NW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Vanthrax. On the other hand, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical January, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 16% of the time (5 days each January) and blows offshore 59% of the time (15 days in an average January). Over an average January winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 4 days at Vanthrax
