(any wind direction)

The graph shows how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical January. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with dark blue strongest. It is based on 3364 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Marbella, located 26 km away (16 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 dominant wind at Marbella 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 Marbella. 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. Over an average January, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 12% of the time (4 days each January) and blows offshore 71% of the time (22 days in an average January). In a typical January winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 4 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Marbella
