(any wind direction)

The graph illustrates how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical June. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the strongest winds shown by the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 3506 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Avalon Point, located 16 km away (10 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 prevailing wind at Avalon Point blows from the WSW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Avalon Point. By contrast, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more deep 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 8% of the time (2 days each June) and blows offshore 37% of the time (9 days in an average June). In a typical June winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at Avalon Point
