(any wind direction)

The figure describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the strongest winds shown by the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 3430 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Talisker Bay (Skye), located 32 km away (20 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 Talisker Bay (Skye) blows from the SW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Talisker Bay (Skye). By contrast, 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 May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 5% of the time (2 days each May) and blows offshore 9% of the time (0 days in an average May). In a typical May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at Talisker Bay (Skye)
