The rose diagram shows how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal June. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 3506 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Praia da Baleia, located 29 km away (18 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 Praia da Baleia blows from the SSE. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Praia da Baleia. By contrast, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical June, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 15% of the time (4 days each June) and blows offshore 29% of the time (9 days in an average June). Over an average June winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 2 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Praia da Baleia
