The graph illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical October. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the strongest winds shown by deep blue. It is based on 3471 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to La Puntilla, located 20 km away (12 miles). There are not enough 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 La Puntilla 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 La Puntilla. By contrast, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average October, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 14% of the time (4 days each October) and blows offshore 29% of the time (8 days in an average October). During a typical October winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 0 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at La Puntilla
