The graph illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal December. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 3448 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Macaronis, located 24 km away (15 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 most common wind at Macaronis blows from the SW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Macaronis. By contrast, dominant spokes illustrate 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 December, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 32% of the time (10 days each December) and blows offshore 40% of the time (12 days in an average December). Over an average December winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 1 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Macaronis
