This chart illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical March. 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 deep blue. It is based on 3460 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Hells Gate, located 24 km away (15 miles). There are insufficient recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Invevitably some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the most common wind at Hells Gate blows from the SW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Hells Gate. By contrast, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average March, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 4% of the time (1 days each March) and blows offshore just 23% of the time (7 days in an average March). During a typical March winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at Hells Gate
