(any wind direction)

The rose diagram describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical April. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the strongest winds shown by the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Gansbaai, located 32 km away (20 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 prevailing wind at Gansbaai blows from the SW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Gansbaai. By contrast, 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 April, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 9% of the time (3 days each April) and blows offshore 56% of the time (16 days in an average April). During a typical April winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Gansbaai
