(any wind direction)

The figure describes how often 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 indicates the strength, with dark blue strongest. It is based on 3360 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Playa de Carnota, located 36 km away (22 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 most common wind at Playa de Carnota blows from the NW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Playa de Carnota. By contrast, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more dark 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 8% of the time (2 days each April) and blows offshore 41% of the time (11 days in an average April). Over an average April winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at Playa de Carnota
