Kilometerstein Vier Hornum (Sylt) Wind Statistics, August averages since 2006

The graph illustrates how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal August. The biggest 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 strongest. It is based on 2976 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Kilometerstein Vier Hornum (Sylt), located 33 km away (21 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 Kilometerstein Vier Hornum (Sylt) 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 Kilometerstein Vier Hornum (Sylt). By contrast, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical August, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 5% of the time (2 days each August) and blows offshore 10% of the time (2 days in an average August). Over an average August winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Kilometerstein Vier Hornum (Sylt)

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.
