(any wind direction)

The rose diagram describes 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 dark blue strongest. It is based on 3506 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Ballydavid, located 23 km away (14 miles). There are too few 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 most common wind at Ballydavid blows from the NNW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Ballydavid. By contrast, dominant spokes represent 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 (the lightest shade of blue) about 0.6% of the time (0 days each June) and blows offshore just 1.5% of the time (0 days in an average June). In a typical June wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Ballydavid
