The rose diagram illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal February. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to L'Epi Nord, 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 L'Epi Nord blows from the WNW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at L'Epi Nord. On the other hand, 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 February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 12% of the time (3 days each February) and blows offshore 40% of the time (11 days in an average February). Over an average February winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at L'Epi Nord
