Ethel Wreck Wind Statistics, Winter averages since 2006

This image describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal southern hemisphere winter. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 7266 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Ethel Wreck, located 29 km away (18 miles). There are too few recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Without question some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3.

According to the model, the most common wind at Ethel Wreck blows from the SW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Ethel Wreck. By contrast, dominant spokes represent 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 southern hemisphere winter, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 9% of the time (8 days each southern hemisphere winter) and blows offshore 34% of the time (30 days in an average southern hemisphere winter). Over an average southern hemisphere winter winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 10 days at Ethel Wreck

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.
