(any wind direction)

This chart illustrates how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical February. The largest 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 Rio Chico, located 27 km away (17 miles). There are too few recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Invevitably some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the prevailing wind at Rio Chico blows from the WSW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Rio Chico. 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 February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 34% of the time (10 days each February) and blows offshore 39% of the time (11 days in an average February). During a typical February winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 0 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Rio Chico
