El Mongol Wind Statistics, June averages since 2006

This image shows how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical June. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the strongest winds shown by deep blue. It is based on 2786 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to El Mongol, located 52 km away (32 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 El Mongol blows from the NW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at El Mongol. Converseley, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average June, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 17% of the time (5 days each June) and blows offshore 33% of the time (5 days in an average June). During a typical June wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at El Mongol

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.
