The rose diagram describes how often 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 deep blue. It is based on 3440 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Algarrobo, located 39 km away (24 miles). There are not enough recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Without question some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the prevailing wind at Algarrobo blows from the WSW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Algarrobo. Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate 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 (pale blue) about 16% of the time (5 days each May) and blows offshore 23% of the time (7 days in an average May). During a typical May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Algarrobo
