(any wind direction)

This picture describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal May. The biggest 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 the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 2589 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2008, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Delaware Bay (East end), located 18 km away (11 miles). There are insufficient recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Without question some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the dominant wind at Delaware Bay (East end) blows from the NW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Delaware Bay (East end). Converseley, 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. During a typical May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 20% of the time (6 days each May) and blows offshore 35% of the time (6 days in an average May). Over an average May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Delaware Bay (East end)
