The figure shows how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical February. The largest 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 2664 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Flynns Reef, located 13 km away (8 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 Flynns Reef blows from the SW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Flynns Reef. Converseley, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 10% of the time (3 days each February) and blows offshore 35% of the time (3 days in an average February). During a typical February wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Flynns Reef
