The figure illustrates how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal June. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with dark blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3506 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Ackergill, located 5 km away (3 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 dominant wind at Ackergill blows from the N. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Ackergill. 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 June, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 4% of the time (1 days each June) and blows offshore just 14% of the time (3 days in an average June). Over an average June wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Ackergill
