This image describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical January. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the darkest shade of blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3364 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Coolum Beach, located 41 km away (25 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 dominant wind at Coolum Beach blows from the ESE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Coolum Beach. By contrast, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average January, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 3% of the time (1 days each January) and blows offshore just 6% of the time (2 days in an average January). In a typical January winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Coolum Beach
