This chart illustrates how frequently 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 implies 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 Ruapuke, located 27 km away (17 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 Ruapuke blows from the WSW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Ruapuke. 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 (pale blue) about 12% of the time (4 days each March) and blows offshore 38% of the time (12 days in an average March). During a typical March winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Ruapuke
