Barra do Sahy Wind Statistics, Autumn averages since 2006

The rose diagram shows how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal southern hemisphere autumn. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 8052 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Barra do Sahy, located 31 km away (19 miles). There are not enough 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 Barra do Sahy blows from the SSE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Barra do Sahy. Converseley, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical southern hemisphere autumn, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 16% of the time (15 days each southern hemisphere autumn) and blows offshore 44% of the time (40 days in an average southern hemisphere autumn). Over an average southern hemisphere autumn wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Barra do Sahy

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.
