Jabal Sur Wind Statistics, September averages since 2006

The figure shows how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical September. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 2880 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Jabal Sur, located 25 km away (16 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 dominant wind at Jabal Sur blows from the S. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Jabal Sur. Converseley, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average September, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 26% of the time (8 days each September) and blows offshore 35% of the time (0 days in an average September). During a typical September winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 1 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Jabal Sur

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.
