Carskiey Bay Wind Statistics, Spring averages since 2006

The rose diagram illustrates how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal northern hemisphere spring. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 5518 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2008, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Carskiey Bay, located 29 km away (18 miles). There are too few 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 prevailing wind at Carskiey Bay blows from the WNW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Carskiey Bay. Converseley, 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 northern hemisphere spring, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 8% of the time (7 days each northern hemisphere spring) and blows offshore 31% of the time (0 days in an average northern hemisphere spring). Over an average northern hemisphere spring winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 7 days at Carskiey 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.
