Anse Cafard Wind Statistics, Winter averages since 2006

The rose diagram describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal northern hemisphere winter. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 6931 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Anse Cafard, located 7 km away (4 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 prevailing wind at Anse Cafard blows from the E. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Anse Cafard. By contrast, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical northern hemisphere winter, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 0.5% of the time (0 days each northern hemisphere winter) and blows offshore just 0.9% of the time (0 days in an average northern hemisphere winter). Over an average northern hemisphere winter winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 5 days at Anse Cafard

IMPORTANT: Beta version feature! Swell heights are open water values from NWW3. There is no attempt to model near-shore effects. Coastal wave heights will generally be less, especially if the break does not have unobstructed exposure to the open ocean.
