The rose diagram illustrates how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal October. The biggest 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 deep blue. It is based on 3471 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to San Miguel - Areias, located 21 km away (13 miles). There are not enough 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 prevailing wind at San Miguel - Areias blows from the NNW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at San Miguel - Areias. Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical October, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 6% of the time (2 days each October) and blows offshore 24% of the time (7 days in an average October). Over an average October winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at San Miguel - Areias
