The graph illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal December. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3448 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Mahia Spit, located 12 km away (7 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 prevailing wind at Mahia Spit blows from the ENE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Mahia Spit. By contrast, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark 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 (light blue) about 4% of the time (1 days each December) and blows offshore just 12% of the time (3 days in an average December). Over an average December wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Mahia Spit
