(any wind direction)

This image illustrates how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical March. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the strongest winds shown by the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 3460 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Ponta Do Rapa, located 44 km away (27 miles). There are insufficient 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 Ponta Do Rapa blows from the ESE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Ponta Do Rapa. Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of 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 (the lightest shade of blue) about 8% of the time (2 days each March) and blows offshore 30% of the time (6 days in an average March). In a typical March winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 2 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Ponta Do Rapa
