(any wind direction)

The rose diagram illustrates 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 indicates the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3430 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Teniente (Lieutenant), located 34 km away (21 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 Teniente (Lieutenant) 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 Teniente (Lieutenant). 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. During a typical May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 12% of the time (4 days each May) and blows offshore 16% of the time (5 days in an average May). Over an average May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 4 days at Teniente (Lieutenant)
