The rose diagram describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical November. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 3347 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Mahia Reef, located 56 km away (35 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 prevailing wind at Mahia Reef blows from the S. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Mahia Reef. By contrast, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more dark 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 (the lightest shade of blue) about 7% of the time (2 days each November) and blows offshore 20% of the time (1 days in an average November). During a typical November winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Mahia Reef
