Chicama - El Point Wind Statistics, June averages since 2006

This image illustrates how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal June. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with dark blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 2306 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Chicama - El Point, located 33 km away (21 miles). There are insufficient 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 dominant wind at Chicama - El Point blows from the SSW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Chicama - El Point. Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical June, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 0.4% of the time (0 days each June) and blows offshore just 0.4% of the time (0 days in an average June). Over an average June winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 4 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Chicama - El Point

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.
