Jardim do Mar Wind Statistics, February averages since 2006

The figure describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal February. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 2440 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Jardim do Mar, located 40 km away (25 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 Jardim do Mar blows from the WNW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Jardim do Mar. 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 February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 5% of the time (1 days each February) and blows offshore 45% of the time (13 days in an average February). Over an average February wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Jardim do Mar

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.
