The rose diagram describes 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 the strongest winds shown by the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 3460 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Runaway Bay, located 35 km away (22 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 Runaway Bay blows from the ENE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Runaway Bay. Converseley, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of 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 (the lightest shade of blue) about 1.8% of the time (1 days each March) and blows offshore just 3% of the time (1 days in an average March). During a typical March winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 4 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Runaway Bay
