(any wind direction)

The rose diagram illustrates how commonly 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 suggests the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3438 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Whistling Sands (Porth Oer), located 24 km away (15 miles). There are insufficient recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Invevitably some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the most common wind at Whistling Sands (Porth Oer) blows from the SW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Whistling Sands (Porth Oer). Converseley, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more dark 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 12% of the time (4 days each May) and blows offshore 28% of the time (0 days in an average May). Over an average May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Whistling Sands (Porth Oer)
