The figure shows how commonly 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 the strongest winds shown by the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 3422 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Shimoda Yamatoken (Tatado Hama), located 19 km away (12 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 prevailing wind at Shimoda Yamatoken (Tatado Hama) blows from the SE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Shimoda Yamatoken (Tatado Hama). By contrast, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of 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 (the lightest shade of blue) about 6% of the time (2 days each May) and blows offshore 10% of the time (3 days in an average May). In a typical May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Shimoda Yamatoken (Tatado Hama)
