This picture describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. The biggest 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 strongest. It is based on 3192 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Glencairn, located 38 km away (24 miles). There are too few 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 most common wind at Glencairn blows from the SSE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Glencairn. On the other hand, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 0.2% of the time (0 days each May) and blows offshore just 1.7% of the time (1 days in an average May). In a typical May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Glencairn
