(any wind direction)

The graph shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical March. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the strongest winds shown by the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 3460 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to The Knap, located 50 km away (31 miles). There are not enough recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. No doubt some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the dominant wind at The Knap blows from the WSW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at The Knap. By contrast, dominant spokes represent 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 March, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 9% of the time (3 days each March) and blows offshore 23% of the time (0 days in an average March). In a typical March winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at The Knap
