Emma Wood State Beach Wind Statistics, Autumn averages since 2006

The figure illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal northern hemisphere autumn. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the strongest winds shown by the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 8476 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Emma Wood State Beach, located 35 km away (22 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 most common wind at Emma Wood State Beach blows from the SW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Emma Wood State Beach. On the other hand, 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. During a typical northern hemisphere autumn, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 22% of the time (20 days each northern hemisphere autumn) and blows offshore 31% of the time (3 days in an average northern hemisphere autumn). Over an average northern hemisphere autumn winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Emma Wood State Beach

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.
