The rose diagram illustrates how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal October. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the darkest shade of blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3471 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Santos Reef, located 39 km away (24 miles). There are not enough 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 dominant wind at Santos Reef blows from the SE. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Santos Reef. By contrast, 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. During a typical October, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 3% of the time (1 days each October) and blows offshore just 12% of the time (2 days in an average October). Over an average October winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Santos Reef
