This image shows how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal May. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with dark 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 (Gonubie Bay), located 15 km away (9 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 prevailing wind at The Point (Gonubie Bay) blows from the SSW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at The Point (Gonubie Bay). By contrast, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark 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 31% of the time (10 days in an average May). Over an average May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at The Point (Gonubie Bay)
