(any wind direction)

The graph shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical April. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Playa da Marosa, located 39 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 most common wind at Playa da Marosa blows from the WNW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Playa da Marosa. By contrast, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average April, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 9% of the time (3 days each April) and blows offshore 26% of the time (8 days in an average April). In a typical April winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at Playa da Marosa
