The rose diagram shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal February. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the darkest shade of blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to La Olla, located 9 km away (6 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 prevailing wind at La Olla blows from the SE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at La Olla. 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. During a typical February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 9% of the time (3 days each February) and blows offshore 17% of the time (4 days in an average February). Over an average February winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 3 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at La Olla
