The figure illustrates how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical November. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with dark blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 1200 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Modrono, located 36 km away (22 miles). There are insufficient recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Invevitably some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the dominant wind at Modrono blows from the SSW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Modrono. Converseley, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more dark 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 17% of the time (5 days each November) and blows offshore 67% of the time (20 days in an average November). In a typical November winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 0 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Modrono
