(any wind direction)

The graph describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical June. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies 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 Annestown, located 21 km away (13 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 Annestown blows from the SW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Annestown. By contrast, dominant spokes show 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 June, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 12% of the time (4 days each June) and blows offshore 24% of the time (0 days in an average June). In a typical June wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Annestown
