(any wind direction)

The graph describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the strongest winds shown by dark blue. It is based on 3430 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to The Hough (Tiree), located 1 km away (1 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 Hough (Tiree) blows from the W. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at The Hough (Tiree). By contrast, dominant spokes represent 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 May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 6% of the time (2 days each May) and blows offshore 31% of the time (1 days in an average May). In a typical May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 4 days at The Hough (Tiree)
