The graph illustrates how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal November. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the strongest winds shown by deep blue. It is based on 3347 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Mangawhai Heads, located 37 km away (23 miles). There are too few 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 Mangawhai Heads blows from the NE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Mangawhai Heads. By contrast, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical November, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 8% of the time (2 days each November) and blows offshore 36% of the time (10 days in an average November). Over an average November wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Mangawhai Heads
