This picture describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical October. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 3471 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Aramoana Spit, located 29 km away (18 miles). There are insufficient 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 dominant wind at Aramoana Spit blows from the ENE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Aramoana Spit. Converseley, 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 October, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 1.7% of the time (1 days each October) and blows offshore just 6% of the time (1 days in an average October). During a typical October winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 1 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Aramoana Spit
