This image shows how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical July. The longest 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 dark blue. It is based on 3472 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Roches Noires, located 24 km away (15 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 dominant wind at Roches Noires blows from the SSW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Roches Noires. On the other hand, 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. Over an average July, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 23% of the time (7 days each July) and blows offshore 83% of the time (26 days in an average July). In a typical July winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 2 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Roches Noires
