(any wind direction)

The figure illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical July. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 2976 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Exotics, located 35 km away (22 miles). There are too few 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 Exotics blows from the SSW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Exotics. On the other hand, dominant spokes show 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 July, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 7% of the time (2 days each July) and blows offshore 7% of the time (2 days in an average July). In a typical July winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 2 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Exotics
