This picture describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal January. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the strongest winds shown by deep blue. It is based on 3364 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to La Punta, located 21 km away (13 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 La Punta blows from the SSW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at La Punta. On the other hand, 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 January, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 10% of the time (3 days each January) and blows offshore 19% of the time (6 days in an average January). Over an average January winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 0 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at La Punta
