(any wind direction)

The figure illustrates how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical February. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Graciosa - Lagou, located 11 km away (7 miles). There are too few recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Invevitably some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the prevailing wind at Graciosa - Lagou blows from the NW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Graciosa - Lagou. 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. Over an average February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 4% of the time (1 days each February) and blows offshore just 28% of the time (8 days in an average February). During a typical February winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 6 days at Graciosa - Lagou
