(any wind direction)

The rose diagram shows how frequently 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 implies the strength, with dark blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3192 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Garbage Heap, located 14 km away (9 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 prevailing wind at Garbage Heap blows from the ENE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Garbage Heap. By contrast, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more dark 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 4% of the time (1 days each May) and blows offshore just 6% of the time (2 days in an average May). Over an average May winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 8 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Garbage Heap
