Carlsbad City Beach Wind Statistics, Winter averages since 2006

This picture describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical northern hemisphere winter. The longest 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 deep blue. It is based on 6931 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Carlsbad City Beach, located 26 km away (16 miles). There are too few 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 Carlsbad City Beach blows from the W. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Carlsbad City Beach. Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average northern hemisphere winter, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 34% of the time (31 days each northern hemisphere winter) and blows offshore 50% of the time (43 days in an average northern hemisphere winter). During a typical northern hemisphere winter wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Carlsbad City 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.
