(any wind direction)

The rose diagram describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical December. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the strongest winds shown by deep blue. It is based on 3444 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Anna Maria Key, located 26 km away (16 miles). There are too few 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 Anna Maria Key blows from the NW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Anna Maria Key. Converseley, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average December, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 5% of the time (2 days each December) and blows offshore 20% of the time (3 days in an average December). In a typical December wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Anna Maria Key
