The figure describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal January. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with dark 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 Puntilla, located 20 km away (12 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 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. On the other hand, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of 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 (pale blue) about 25% of the time (8 days each January) and blows offshore 44% of the time (11 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 Puntilla
