(any wind direction)

This picture illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal June. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the darkest shade of blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3504 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Le Poux, located 12 km away (7 miles). There are too few 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 Le Poux blows from the WNW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Le Poux. Converseley, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical June, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 8% of the time (2 days each June) and blows offshore 18% of the time (2 days in an average June). Over an average June wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Le Poux
