The graph 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 Whitsand Bay and Tregantle, located 42 km away (26 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 dominant wind at Whitsand Bay and Tregantle blows from the WSW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Whitsand Bay and Tregantle. 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 (pale blue) about 9% of the time (3 days each May) and blows offshore 26% of the time (7 days in an average May). Over an average May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Whitsand Bay and Tregantle
