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 3440 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Byron Bay - The Wreck, located 41 km away (25 miles). There are too few 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 most common wind at Byron Bay - The Wreck blows from the SE. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Byron Bay - The Wreck.

In a typical May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Byron Bay - The Wreck
