The graph illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical February. 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 deep blue. It is based on 2664 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2009, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Tahunanui Beach, located 38 km away (24 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 Tahunanui Beach blows from the NNW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Tahunanui Beach. On the other hand, dominant spokes show 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 February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 14% of the time (4 days each February) and blows offshore 22% of the time (0 days in an average February). During a typical February wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Tahunanui Beach
