This chart illustrates how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 3440 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Karikari Beach, located 39 km away (24 miles). There are too few 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 Karikari Beach blows from the NNW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Karikari Beach. On the other hand, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 0.3% of the time (0 days each May) and blows offshore just 1.5% of the time (0 days in an average May). In a typical May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Karikari Beach
