(any wind direction)

This image describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical March. The biggest 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 3460 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Cape Vidal, located 42 km away (26 miles). There are insufficient recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Without question some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the dominant wind at Cape Vidal blows from the ESE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Cape Vidal. On the other hand, 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 March, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 7% of the time (2 days each March) and blows offshore 10% of the time (3 days in an average March). In a typical March winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 4 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Cape Vidal
