This image describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. The largest 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 showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3440 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Irmas/Leftpoint, located 28 km away (17 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 Irmas/Leftpoint blows from the ENE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Irmas/Leftpoint. By contrast, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more deep 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 2% of the time (1 days each May) and blows offshore just 2% of the time (1 days in an average May). During a typical May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Irmas/Leftpoint
