The rose diagram describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal February. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the darkest shade of 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 Tourmaline, located 30 km away (19 miles). There are insufficient 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 Tourmaline blows from the WSW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Tourmaline. Converseley, 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. During a typical February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 38% of the time (11 days each February) and blows offshore 47% of the time (13 days in an average February). Over an average February wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Tourmaline
