(any wind direction)

The figure describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical December. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with dark blue strongest. It is based on 2953 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Fort Fisher, located 43 km away (27 miles). There are not enough 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 most common wind at Fort Fisher blows from the ENE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Fort Fisher. By contrast, 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 December, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 1.6% of the time (0 days each December) and blows offshore just 7% of the time (0 days in an average December). In a typical December wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Fort Fisher
