The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the strongest winds shown by deep blue. It is based on 3190 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Playa Carate, located 19 km away (12 miles).

During a typical April winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 0 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Playa Carate
