The rose diagram describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical July. 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 showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3720 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Aufaga, located 9 km away (6 miles). There are insufficient 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 dominant wind at Aufaga blows from the SSW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Aufaga. On the other hand, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average July, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 2% of the time (1 days each July) and blows offshore just 5% of the time (1 days in an average July). During a typical July winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 3 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Aufaga
