This picture describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal December. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the strongest winds shown by deep blue. It is based on 2953 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Nunoshima, located 30 km away (19 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 most common wind at Nunoshima blows from the SE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Nunoshima. On the other hand, 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 December, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 17% of the time (5 days each December) and blows offshore 52% of the time (10 days in an average December). Over an average December wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Nunoshima
