The graph shows how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal April. 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 the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 2880 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Paparahi Point, located 12 km away (7 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 prevailing wind at Paparahi Point blows from the NE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Paparahi Point. 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 April, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 4% of the time (1 days each April) and blows offshore just 13% of the time (3 days in an average April). Over an average April wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Paparahi Point
