(any wind direction)

The graph shows how often 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 suggests the strength, with the darkest shade of blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 2838 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Playa de Barrika, located 11 km away (7 miles). There are not enough recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Invevitably some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the dominant wind at Playa de Barrika blows from the NW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Playa de Barrika. Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more deep 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 22% of the time (7 days each May) and blows offshore 42% of the time (1 days in an average May). In a typical May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Playa de Barrika
