(any wind direction)

The figure shows how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal May. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3430 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to The Breakwater-St Ives, located 31 km away (19 miles). There are too few 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 dominant wind at The Breakwater-St Ives blows from the WNW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at The Breakwater-St Ives. On the other hand, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 8% of the time (2 days each May) and blows offshore 25% of the time (4 days in an average May). Over an average May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at The Breakwater-St Ives
