The rose diagram illustrates how frequently 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 implies the strength, with dark blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 2782 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Fairlight, located 43 km away (27 miles). There are insufficient 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 Fairlight blows from the WSW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Fairlight. Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more dark 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 (light blue) about 9% of the time (3 days each June) and blows offshore 30% of the time (1 days in an average June). In a typical June winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Fairlight
