(any wind direction)

The figure shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical February. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with deep 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 Rancho San Carlos, located 20 km away (12 miles). There are too few 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 most common wind at Rancho San Carlos blows from the SSW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Rancho San Carlos. On the other hand, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more dark 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 (the lightest shade of blue) about 10% of the time (3 days each February) and blows offshore 20% of the time (6 days in an average February). In a typical February winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 0 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Rancho San Carlos
