(any wind direction)

The figure shows how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical February. 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 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Playa del Macao, located 25 km away (16 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 prevailing wind at Playa del Macao blows from the NNE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Playa del Macao. By contrast, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 3% of the time (1 days each February) and blows offshore just 6% of the time (2 days in an average February). In a typical February winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 2 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Playa del Macao
