(any wind direction)

The rose diagram describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 2838 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Zumaya (Playa de Itxurun), located 29 km away (18 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 Zumaya (Playa de Itxurun) blows from the NW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Zumaya (Playa de Itxurun). By contrast, 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 May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 20% of the time (6 days each May) and blows offshore 33% of the time (10 days in an average May). During a typical May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Zumaya (Playa de Itxurun)
