Bunatrahir Bay Wind Statistics, August averages since 2006

The figure shows how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical August. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the strongest winds shown by dark blue. It is based on 2976 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Bunatrahir Bay, located 24 km away (15 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 dominant wind at Bunatrahir Bay blows from the NW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Bunatrahir Bay. 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 August, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 3% of the time (1 days each August) and blows offshore just 16% of the time (4 days in an average August). During a typical August wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Bunatrahir Bay

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.
