The figure illustrates how frequently 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 suggests the strength, with the strongest winds shown by dark blue. It is based on 3440 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Whitianga, located 33 km away (21 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 most common wind at Whitianga blows from the ENE. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Whitianga. By contrast, dominant spokes represent 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 11% of the time (3 days each May) and blows offshore 42% of the time (3 days in an average May). Over an average May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Whitianga
