All Swells

(any wind direction)

The rose diagram describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical March. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with dark blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3460 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Vaihu, located 23 km away (14 miles). There are insufficient 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 Vaihu blows from the SSW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Vaihu. Converseley, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark 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 (pale blue) about 11% of the time (3 days each March) and blows offshore 31% of the time (9 days in an average March). In a typical March winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 3 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Vaihu
