The figure illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal February. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the strongest winds shown by dark blue. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Riozinho, located 51 km away (32 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 dominant wind at Riozinho blows from the ESE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Riozinho. By contrast, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 8% of the time (2 days each February) and blows offshore 14% of the time (4 days in an average February). Over an average February wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Riozinho
