(any wind direction)

The graph illustrates how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal May. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 3192 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2008, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Westport, located 19 km away (12 miles). There are insufficient 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 Westport blows from the WNW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Westport. Converseley, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 8% of the time (2 days each May) and blows offshore 20% of the time (2 days in an average May). Over an average May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Westport
