The graph describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal May. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 3435 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Bamboo Island, located 7 km away (4 miles). There are not enough 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 dominant wind at Bamboo Island blows from the SW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Bamboo Island. By contrast, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more deep 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 (pale blue) about 20% of the time (6 days each May) and blows offshore 21% of the time (0 days in an average May). Over an average May winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 1 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Bamboo Island
