(any wind direction)

The rose diagram illustrates how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal November. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with dark blue strongest. It is based on 3347 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Motukahakaha and Paradise Bay, located 32 km away (20 miles). There are not enough 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 dominant wind at Motukahakaha and Paradise Bay blows from the NE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Motukahakaha and Paradise Bay. By contrast, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more deep 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 10% of the time (3 days each November) and blows offshore 41% of the time (2 days in an average November). Over an average November wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Motukahakaha and Paradise Bay
