The figure describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal May. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the strongest winds shown by dark blue. It is based on 2838 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Ocean Beach (Whangarei), located 35 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 most common wind at Ocean Beach (Whangarei) blows from the ENE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Ocean Beach (Whangarei). On the other hand, 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. During a typical May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 11% of the time (3 days each May) and blows offshore 41% of the time (11 days in an average May). Over an average May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Ocean Beach (Whangarei)
