(any wind direction)

The figure illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal June. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the strongest winds shown by deep blue. It is based on 2786 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to El Cardon, located 45 km away (28 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 El Cardon blows from the WNW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at El Cardon. Converseley, dominant spokes show 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 June, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 7% of the time (2 days each June) and blows offshore 7% of the time (2 days in an average June). Over an average June winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 3 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at El Cardon
