(any wind direction)

The figure describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical 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 showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3440 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Boca do Poco, located 46 km away (29 miles). There are insufficient 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 most common wind at Boca do Poco blows from the NNE. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Boca do Poco. On the other hand, 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 (light blue) about 3% of the time (1 days each May) and blows offshore just 4% of the time (1 days in an average May). In a typical May winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 3 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Boca do Poco
