The figure describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. 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 Praia do Norte, located 38 km away (24 miles). There are not enough 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 Praia do Norte blows from the WNW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Praia do Norte. On the other hand, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 6% of the time (2 days each May) and blows offshore 11% of the time (3 days in an average May). During a typical May wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Praia do Norte
