The rose diagram shows how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical January. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the strongest winds shown by dark blue. It is based on 3364 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Graters, located 32 km away (20 miles). There are insufficient 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 prevailing wind at Graters blows from the NW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Graters. On the other hand, 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 9% of the time (3 days each January) and blows offshore 45% of the time (14 days in an average January). During a typical January wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Graters
