This image describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal April. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the darkest shade of blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3358 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Playa El Palmar, located 27 km away (17 miles). There are insufficient 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 El Palmar blows from the W. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Playa El Palmar. Converseley, dominant spokes show 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 (light blue) about 3% of the time (1 days each April) and blows offshore just 11% of the time (1 days in an average April). Over an average April wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Playa El Palmar
