This picture illustrates how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical January. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3364 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to La Preciosa, located 37 km away (23 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 Preciosa blows from the NNE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at La Preciosa. By contrast, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average January, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 3% of the time (1 days each January) and blows offshore just 29% of the time (9 days in an average January). During a typical January winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 2 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at La Preciosa
