This image illustrates how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal June. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with dark blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3266 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Makorori Point, located 38 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 dominant wind at Makorori Point blows from the SE. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Makorori Point. Converseley, 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. During a typical June, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 8% of the time (2 days each June) and blows offshore 42% of the time (13 days in an average June). Over an average June winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 6 days at Makorori Point
