Bird Point (Tidal Bore) Wind Statistics, October averages since 2006

This picture describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal October. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 2976 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Bird Point (Tidal Bore), located 156 km away (97 miles). There are insufficient 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 Bird Point (Tidal Bore) blows from the S. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Bird Point (Tidal Bore). By contrast, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical October, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 17% of the time (5 days each October) and blows offshore 52% of the time (5 days in an average October). Over an average October winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Bird Point (Tidal Bore)

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.
