(any wind direction)

The figure describes how frequently 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 implies the strength, with the strongest winds shown by the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Vale do Lobo, located 8 km away (5 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 dominant wind at Vale do Lobo blows from the W. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Vale do Lobo. By contrast, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more dark 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 (pale blue) about 17% of the time (5 days each February) and blows offshore 46% of the time (12 days in an average February). In a typical February wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Vale do Lobo
