The figure illustrates how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical March. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with dark blue strongest. It is based on 2964 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Playa de la Barrosa, located 32 km away (20 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 prevailing wind at Playa de la Barrosa blows from the W. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Playa de la Barrosa. Converseley, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average March, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 9% of the time (3 days each March) and blows offshore 28% of the time (8 days in an average March). During a typical March winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Playa de la Barrosa
