(any wind direction)

The rose diagram describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical 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 showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3206 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Greenmeadows, located 40 km away (25 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 Greenmeadows blows from the WSW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Greenmeadows. Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate 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 May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 6% of the time (2 days each May) and blows offshore 20% of the time (6 days in an average May). During a typical May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 4 days at Greenmeadows
