This picture shows how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal February. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the darkest shade of blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 2664 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Piha North, located 7 km away (4 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 most common wind at Piha North blows from the WSW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Piha North. By contrast, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 18% of the time (5 days each February) and blows offshore 45% of the time (13 days in an average February). Over an average February winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 2 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Piha North
