This chart describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical July. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the strongest winds shown by deep blue. It is based on 3224 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2008, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Black Middens, located 27 km away (17 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 prevailing wind at Black Middens blows from the NNE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Black Middens. On the other hand, dominant spokes show 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 July, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 8% of the time (2 days each July) and blows offshore 26% of the time (1 days in an average July). In a typical July winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 1 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Black Middens
