(any wind direction)

The figure describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with dark blue strongest. It is based on 3430 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Castlepoint - The Gap, located 26 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 prevailing wind at Castlepoint - The Gap blows from the ESE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Castlepoint - The Gap. On the other hand, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more dark 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 4% of the time (1 days each May) and blows offshore just 24% of the time (1 days in an average May). In a typical May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Castlepoint - The Gap
