This picture shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal September. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3358 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Ward Beach, located 47 km away (29 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 Ward Beach blows from the SSE. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Ward Beach. By contrast, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical September, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 6% of the time (2 days each September) and blows offshore 28% of the time (4 days in an average September). Over an average September winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at Ward Beach
