The figure describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. The largest 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 Dunedin - Blue Tops, located 18 km away (11 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 most common wind at Dunedin - Blue Tops blows from the SSE. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Dunedin - Blue Tops. On the other hand, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more deep 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 48% of the time (9 days in an average May). In a typical May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 4 days at Dunedin - Blue Tops
