(any wind direction)

The graph describes how often 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 suggests the strength, with the darkest shade of blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3440 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Wallys, located 30 km away (19 miles). There are insufficient 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 Wallys blows from the SW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Wallys. By contrast, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more deep 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 31% of the time (10 days each May) and blows offshore 35% of the time (11 days in an average May). Over an average May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Wallys
