The rose diagram describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical February. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Long Strand-Castlefreke, located 7 km away (4 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 Long Strand-Castlefreke blows from the SW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Long Strand-Castlefreke. Converseley, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 4% of the time (1 days each February) and blows offshore just 16% of the time (4 days in an average February). During a typical February winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 7 days at Long Strand-Castlefreke
