The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with deep blue strongest.

There are insufficient 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 prevailing wind at Ocean Avenue blows from the E. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Ocean Avenue. On the other hand, 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 (light blue) about 11% of the time (3 days each May) and blows offshore 28% of the time (6 days in an average May).
