(any wind direction)

The rose diagram describes how frequently 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 implies the strength, with the strongest winds shown by the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 3366 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Grishipoll Bay (Coll), located 18 km away (11 miles). There are insufficient recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Invevitably some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the most common wind at Grishipoll Bay (Coll) blows from the WNW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Grishipoll Bay (Coll). Converseley, dominant spokes represent 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 (light blue) about 7% of the time (2 days each May) and blows offshore 21% of the time (5 days in an average May). In a typical May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Grishipoll Bay (Coll)
