(any wind direction)

This chart shows how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal May. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with dark blue strongest. It is based on 3181 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2008, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Inner Cut, located 35 km away (22 miles). There are too few 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 Inner Cut blows from the NW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Inner Cut. By contrast, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more dark 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 (pale blue) about 21% of the time (7 days each May) and blows offshore 36% of the time (1 days in an average May). Over an average May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Inner Cut
