The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the darkest shade of 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 The Point (Elands Bay), located 37 km away (23 miles). There are not enough recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Invevitably some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the prevailing wind at The Point (Elands Bay) 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 Point (Elands Bay). On the other hand, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 18% of the time (6 days each May) and blows offshore 54% of the time (17 days in an average May). In a typical May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at The Point (Elands Bay)
