El Roque Taganana Wind Statistics, June averages since 2006

This picture shows how often 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 2786 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to El Roque Taganana, located 22 km away (14 miles). There are not enough 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 El Roque Taganana blows from the N. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at El Roque Taganana. By contrast, dominant spokes show 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 (the lightest shade of blue) about 3% of the time (1 days each June) and blows offshore just 3% of the time (1 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 El Roque Taganana

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.
