(any wind direction)

The rose diagram shows how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical March. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 3460 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Banks Peninsula - Raupo Bay, located 17 km away (11 miles). There are insufficient 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 prevailing wind at Banks Peninsula - Raupo Bay blows from the ESE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Banks Peninsula - Raupo Bay. 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 March, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 15% of the time (5 days each March) and blows offshore 35% of the time (2 days in an average March). In a typical March wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Banks Peninsula - Raupo Bay
