The rose diagram shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 2838 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Dunedin - Ocean View, located 14 km away (9 miles). 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 Dunedin - Ocean View blows from the SE. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Dunedin - Ocean View. On the other hand, 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 May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 10% of the time (3 days each May) and blows offshore 39% of the time (12 days in an average May). During a typical May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at Dunedin - Ocean View
