The graph illustrates 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 indicates the strength, with the darkest shade of 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 Puntilla, located 20 km away (12 miles). There are not enough 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 Puntilla blows from the SW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at La Puntilla. Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate 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 (the lightest shade of blue) about 29% of the time (8 days each February) and blows offshore 55% of the time (15 days in an average February). Over an average February winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 0 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at La Puntilla
