The rose diagram describes how commonly 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 indicates the strength, with the strongest winds shown by dark blue. It is based on 3343 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Matagorda, located 10 km away (6 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 Matagorda blows from the E. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Matagorda. By contrast, dominant spokes represent 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 6% of the time (2 days each November) and blows offshore 15% of the time (3 days in an average November). During a typical November wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Matagorda
