(any wind direction)

The rose diagram shows how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal March. 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 2964 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Forrest Caves (Phillip Island), located 27 km away (17 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 prevailing wind at Forrest Caves (Phillip Island) blows from the SW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Forrest Caves (Phillip Island). By contrast, dominant spokes illustrate 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 March, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 12% of the time (4 days each March) and blows offshore 35% of the time (3 days in an average March). Over an average March winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Forrest Caves (Phillip Island)
