East End and The Gap Wind Statistics, Spring averages since 2006

This image describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal southern hemisphere spring. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the darkest shade of blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 8476 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to East End and The Gap, located 9 km away (6 miles). There are not enough 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 most common wind at East End and The Gap 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 East End and The Gap. On the other hand, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical southern hemisphere spring, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 8% of the time (7 days each southern hemisphere spring) and blows offshore 24% of the time (15 days in an average southern hemisphere spring). Over an average southern hemisphere spring winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 5 days at East End and The Gap

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.
