The rose diagram illustrates how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. The largest 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 3440 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Wickaninnish, located 24 km away (15 miles). There are not enough 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 Wickaninnish blows from the WSW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Wickaninnish. On the other hand, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more deep 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 23% of the time (7 days each May) and blows offshore 71% of the time (22 days in an average May). During a typical May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Wickaninnish
