This image shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical January. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 3364 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Lackan Bay, located 30 km away (19 miles). There are not enough 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 prevailing wind at Lackan Bay blows from the NW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Lackan Bay. 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. Over an average January, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 2% of the time (1 days each January) and blows offshore just 35% of the time (11 days in an average January). During a typical January winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 7 days at Lackan Bay
