The figure shows 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 suggests the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 3364 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Gunnamatta Beach, located 32 km away (20 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 prevailing wind at Gunnamatta Beach blows from the SW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Gunnamatta Beach. On the other hand, 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 (the lightest shade of blue) about 10% of the time (3 days each January) and blows offshore 23% of the time (7 days in an average January). During a typical January wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Gunnamatta Beach
