(any wind direction)

The figure describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal May. 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 2838 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to El Burro, located 38 km away (24 miles). There are insufficient 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 dominant wind at El Burro blows from the NNE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at El Burro. On the other hand, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 0.6% of the time (0 days each May) and blows offshore just 2% of the time (0 days in an average May). Over an average May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at El Burro
