The graph illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 2838 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Niijima - Awaii, located 24 km away (15 miles). There are too few 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 most common wind at Niijima - Awaii blows from the S. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Niijima - Awaii. Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 3% of the time (1 days each May) and blows offshore just 14% of the time (5 days in an average May). During a typical May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at Niijima - Awaii
