(any wind direction)

The rose diagram describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with dark blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3440 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Labenne Ocean, located 43 km away (27 miles). There are not enough 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 Labenne Ocean blows from the WNW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Labenne Ocean. Converseley, 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. Over an average May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 21% of the time (7 days each May) and blows offshore 33% of the time (10 days in an average May). In a typical May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Labenne Ocean
