The rose diagram describes how commonly 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 implies 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 Banks Peninsula - Magnet Bay, located 21 km away (13 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 Banks Peninsula - Magnet Bay blows from the SSE. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Banks Peninsula - Magnet Bay. Converseley, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more deep 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 7% of the time (2 days each December) and blows offshore 30% of the time (9 days in an average December). Over an average December wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Banks Peninsula - Magnet Bay
