Caswell Bay Wind Statistics, Summer averages since 2006

The graph describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical northern hemisphere summer. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 7264 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Caswell Bay, located 8 km away (5 miles). There are insufficient recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Without question some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3.

According to the model, the dominant wind at Caswell Bay blows from the WSW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Caswell Bay. Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average northern hemisphere summer, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 12% of the time (11 days each northern hemisphere summer) and blows offshore 21% of the time (0 days in an average northern hemisphere summer). During a typical northern hemisphere summer winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Caswell 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.
