(any wind direction)

The graph shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal May. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the strongest winds shown by dark blue. It is based on 3440 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Armadale Bay, located 50 km away (31 miles). There are insufficient recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Without question some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the prevailing wind at Armadale Bay blows from the NW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Armadale Bay. Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate 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 (light blue) about 5% of the time (2 days each May) and blows offshore 31% of the time (10 days in an average May). Over an average May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at Armadale Bay
