Chapel St Leonards Wind Statistics, November averages since 2006

This chart illustrates how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical November. The largest 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 2386 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Chapel St Leonards, located 26 km away (16 miles). There are insufficient 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 prevailing wind at Chapel St Leonards blows from the N. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Chapel St Leonards. By contrast, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average November, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 3% of the time (1 days each November) and blows offshore just 22% of the time (2 days in an average November). In a typical November wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Chapel St Leonards

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.
