(any wind direction)

The rose diagram describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal May. The longest 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 3440 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Thicklip, located 57 km away (35 miles). There are not enough 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 Thicklip blows from the SW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Thicklip. Converseley, 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. During a typical May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 6% of the time (2 days each May) and blows offshore 13% of the time (4 days in an average May). Over an average May winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 4 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Thicklip
