(any wind direction)

This picture shows how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical March. The largest 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 deep blue. It is based on 3460 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Waihau Bay, located 15 km away (9 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 Waihau Bay blows from the NNE. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Waihau Bay. On the other hand, 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 5% of the time (2 days each March) and blows offshore 9% of the time (1 days in an average March). In a typical March wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Waihau Bay
