(any wind direction)

The rose diagram shows how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical February. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the strongest winds shown by deep blue. It is based on 2888 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Furadouro, located 30 km away (19 miles). There are not enough 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 Furadouro blows from the WNW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Furadouro. On the other hand, 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 (the lightest shade of blue) about 16% of the time (4 days each February) and blows offshore 34% of the time (10 days in an average February). In a typical February winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at Furadouro
