Fingal Point and Beach Wind Statistics, Spring averages since 2006

The rose diagram describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal southern hemisphere spring. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the darkest shade of blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 7252 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Fingal Point and Beach, located 23 km away (14 miles). There are insufficient 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 prevailing wind at Fingal Point and Beach blows from the ENE. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Fingal Point and Beach. On the other hand, dominant spokes illustrate 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 spring, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 8% of the time (7 days each southern hemisphere spring) and blows offshore 18% of the time (15 days in an average southern hemisphere spring). Over an average southern hemisphere spring wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Fingal Point and 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.
