The graph describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical 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 Makorori North, located 36 km away (22 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 Makorori North blows from the E. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Makorori North. By contrast, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average 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 42% of the time (7 days in an average December). In a typical December wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Makorori North
