(any wind direction)

The rose diagram illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical October. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3471 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Little Wanganui, located 44 km away (27 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 prevailing wind at Little Wanganui blows from the W. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Little Wanganui. By contrast, 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 October, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 14% of the time (4 days each October) and blows offshore 23% of the time (7 days in an average October). In a typical October winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Little Wanganui
