This picture describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical January. The biggest 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 3364 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Point Arena, located 25 km away (16 miles). There are insufficient 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 dominant wind at Point Arena blows from the WNW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Point Arena. By contrast, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average January, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 22% of the time (7 days each January) and blows offshore 34% of the time (10 days in an average January). During a typical January winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at Point Arena
