The graph shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal May. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with deep 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 Porto Beach, located 46 km away (29 miles). There are not enough 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 Porto Beach blows from the SW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at El Porto Beach. Converseley, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more dark 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 (light blue) about 31% of the time (10 days each May) and blows offshore 36% of the time (11 days in an average May). Over an average May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at El Porto Beach
