(any wind direction)

The rose diagram describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical February. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Napier - The Gap, located 13 km away (8 miles). There are too few recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. No doubt some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the most common wind at Napier - The Gap blows from the ENE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Napier - The Gap. On the other hand, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more deep 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 9% of the time (3 days each February) and blows offshore 15% of the time (4 days in an average February). During a typical February winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 1 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Napier - The Gap
