(any wind direction)

This chart illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal April. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 3360 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Caracoles, located 22 km away (14 miles). There are too few 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 Caracoles blows from the NE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Caracoles. Converseley, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more deep 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 (pale blue) about 6% of the time (2 days each April) and blows offshore 11% of the time (3 days in an average April). Over an average April winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 4 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Caracoles
