(any wind direction)

The figure shows how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal March. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the strongest winds shown by deep blue. It is based on 2964 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Waimea Bay/Pinballs, located 40 km away (25 miles). There are insufficient recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Without question some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the prevailing wind at Waimea Bay/Pinballs blows from the NNW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Waimea Bay/Pinballs. By contrast, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical March, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 6% of the time (2 days each March) and blows offshore 45% of the time (14 days in an average March). Over an average March winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Waimea Bay/Pinballs
