The figure describes how often 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 implies the strength, with dark blue strongest. It is based on 3116 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Garden City Pier, located 9 km away (6 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 Garden City Pier blows from the SSE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Garden City Pier. Converseley, dominant spokes show 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 10% of the time (3 days each January) and blows offshore 34% of the time (6 days in an average January). In a typical January wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Garden City Pier
