The graph shows how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal May. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with dark blue strongest. It is based on 3440 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Bar Beach (Narooma), located 40 km away (25 miles). There are not enough 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 Bar Beach (Narooma) blows from the S. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Bar Beach (Narooma). Converseley, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark 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 (light blue) about 6% of the time (2 days each May) and blows offshore 30% of the time (9 days in an average May). Over an average May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Bar Beach (Narooma)
