(any wind direction)

This chart describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical January. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates 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 St Andrews, located 25 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 most common wind at St Andrews blows from the NE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at St Andrews. Converseley, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more deep 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 3% of the time (1 days each January) and blows offshore just 16% of the time (1 days in an average January). During a typical January wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at St Andrews
