This picture shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical July. The biggest 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 3472 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Dunedin - St Kilda Beach, located 10 km away (6 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 most common wind at Dunedin - St Kilda Beach blows from the S. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Dunedin - St Kilda Beach. By contrast, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average July, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 7% of the time (2 days each July) and blows offshore 34% of the time (11 days in an average July). During a typical July winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 4 days at Dunedin - St Kilda Beach
