Jarawa Point (Totems Reef) Wind Statistics, August averages since 2006

This image shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical August. 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 2976 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Jarawa Point (Totems Reef), located 31 km away (19 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 most common wind at Jarawa Point (Totems Reef) 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 Jarawa Point (Totems Reef). By contrast, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average August, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 1.1% of the time (0 days each August) and blows offshore just 97% of the time (9 days in an average August). In a typical August winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 4 days at Jarawa Point (Totems Reef)

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.
