The figure shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical February. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with dark blue strongest. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to La Arena, located 49 km away (30 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 La Arena blows from the WNW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at La Arena. 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 February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 10% of the time (3 days each February) and blows offshore 35% of the time (9 days in an average February). During a typical February winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 6 days at La Arena
