(any wind direction)

The figure describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal March. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with dark 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 Ribeira da Janela, located 22 km away (14 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 Ribeira da Janela blows from the NNW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Ribeira da Janela. Converseley, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical March, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 5% of the time (2 days each March) and blows offshore 12% of the time (4 days in an average March). Over an average March winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Ribeira da Janela
