(any wind direction)

The rose diagram describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal May. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the strongest winds shown by the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 3440 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Okiwi - Whangapoua Estuary, located 17 km away (11 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 Okiwi - Whangapoua Estuary blows from the ENE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Okiwi - Whangapoua Estuary. Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more deep 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 (light blue) about 7% of the time (2 days each May) and blows offshore 27% of the time (3 days in an average May). Over an average May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Okiwi - Whangapoua Estuary
