This chart describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical December. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3448 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Abalone Cove, located 29 km away (18 miles). There are too few 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 prevailing wind at Abalone Cove 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 Abalone Cove. On the other hand, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more deep 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 (pale blue) about 27% of the time (8 days each December) and blows offshore 54% of the time (1 days in an average December). During a typical December wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Abalone Cove
