The figure describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. The largest 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 2838 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Keta Reef Oshima, located 42 km away (26 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 Keta Reef Oshima blows from the SSE. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Keta Reef Oshima. 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 May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 6% of the time (2 days each May) and blows offshore 18% of the time (0 days in an average May). In a typical May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Keta Reef Oshima
