(any wind direction)

The rose diagram 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 implies the strength, with dark blue strongest. It is based on 3460 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Thistle Island (False Creek), located 10 km away (6 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 most common wind at Thistle Island (False Creek) blows from the SW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Thistle Island (False Creek). Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate 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 (the lightest shade of blue) about 6% of the time (2 days each March) and blows offshore 20% of the time (6 days in an average March). During a typical March wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Thistle Island (False Creek)
