The rose diagram illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal April. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 3360 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Cape Elizabeth, located 22 km away (14 miles). There are insufficient 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 prevailing wind at Cape Elizabeth blows from the W. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Cape Elizabeth. On the other hand, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical April, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 19% of the time (6 days each April) and blows offshore 32% of the time (10 days in an average April). Over an average April wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Cape Elizabeth
