The rose diagram illustrates how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical January. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 3364 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Saligo (Islay), located 21 km away (13 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 prevailing wind at Saligo (Islay) blows from the W. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Saligo (Islay). Converseley, 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 January, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 1.8% of the time (1 days each January) and blows offshore just 13% of the time (4 days in an average January). In a typical January winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 12 days at Saligo (Islay)
