This chart illustrates 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 implies 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 Radar Reef, located 5 km away (3 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 prevailing wind at Radar Reef blows from the SW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Radar Reef. By contrast, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more deep 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 22% of the time (6 days in an average February). In a typical February winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at Radar Reef
