The rose diagram describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal August. The biggest 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 3574 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Bobs, located 21 km away (13 miles). There are too few recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. No doubt some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the most common wind at Bobs blows from the SSE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Bobs. On the other hand, 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. During a typical August, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 0.3% of the time (0 days each August) and blows offshore just 0.5% of the time (0 days in an average August). Over an average August winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 4 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Bobs
