(any wind direction)

This chart shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical February. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Hicks Bay, located 20 km away (12 miles). There are not enough 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 dominant wind at Hicks Bay blows from the ENE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Hicks Bay. On the other hand, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 5% of the time (1 days each February) and blows offshore 16% of the time (1 days in an average February). During a typical February wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Hicks Bay
