This image describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal November. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with dark blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3347 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Maasvlakte, located 11 km away (7 miles). There are too few 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 Maasvlakte blows from the NW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Maasvlakte. On the other hand, 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 November, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 3% of the time (1 days each November) and blows offshore just 7% of the time (0 days in an average November). Over an average November winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at Maasvlakte
