Calicoan Island ABCD Beach Wind Statistics, October averages since 2006

The rose diagram shows how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical October. The largest 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 dark blue. It is based on 2976 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Calicoan Island ABCD Beach, located 19 km away (12 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 Calicoan Island ABCD Beach blows from the NE. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Calicoan Island ABCD Beach. Converseley, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average October, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 19% of the time (6 days each October) and blows offshore 47% of the time (15 days in an average October). During a typical October wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Calicoan Island ABCD Beach

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.
