(any wind direction)

This picture describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with dark blue strongest. It is based on 3440 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Woodpecker Bay, located 31 km away (19 miles). There are not enough 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 dominant wind at Woodpecker Bay blows from the WSW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Woodpecker Bay. On the other hand, dominant spokes illustrate 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 May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 21% of the time (7 days each May) and blows offshore 43% of the time (7 days in an average May). During a typical May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at Woodpecker Bay
