The figure describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal February. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests 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 Posta, located 16 km away (10 miles). There are too few 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 Posta blows from the SSE. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at La Posta. Converseley, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more deep 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 (the lightest shade of blue) about 5% of the time (1 days each February) and blows offshore 13% of the time (3 days in an average February). Over an average February wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at La Posta
