(any wind direction)

The rose diagram describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal April. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with dark blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3360 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Playa do Rostro, located 19 km away (12 miles). There are too few recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Without question some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the prevailing wind at Playa do Rostro blows from the WNW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Playa do Rostro. On the other hand, 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. During a typical April, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 8% of the time (2 days each April) and blows offshore 23% of the time (7 days in an average April). Over an average April winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at Playa do Rostro
