The figure illustrates how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical October. The biggest 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 3471 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Avaavaroa Passage, located 34 km away (21 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 dominant wind at Avaavaroa Passage blows from the SSW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Avaavaroa Passage. Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate 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 (pale blue) about 4% of the time (1 days each October) and blows offshore just 18% of the time (6 days in an average October). In a typical October winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 5 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Avaavaroa Passage
