The figure illustrates how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical January. The largest 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 LancesLeft, located 21 km away (13 miles). There are not enough 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 dominant wind at LancesLeft blows from the SW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at LancesLeft. On the other hand, 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 January, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 36% of the time (11 days each January) and blows offshore 86% of the time (27 days in an average January). During a typical January winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 0 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at LancesLeft
