(any wind direction)

This chart shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical March. The biggest 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 3460 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to San Miguel - Ribeira Grande, located 20 km away (12 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 San Miguel - Ribeira Grande blows from the NNW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at San Miguel - Ribeira Grande. Converseley, 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 March, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 7% of the time (2 days each March) and blows offshore 23% of the time (6 days in an average March). During a typical March winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at San Miguel - Ribeira Grande
