This picture illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical November. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with dark blue strongest. It is based on 3347 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Mahanga Point, located 9 km away (6 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 Mahanga Point blows from the ENE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Mahanga Point. Converseley, 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. Over an average November, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 4% of the time (1 days each November) and blows offshore just 11% of the time (3 days in an average November). In a typical November winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 2 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Mahanga Point
