La Cote Sauvage Wind Statistics, Winter averages since 2006

This picture shows how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal northern hemisphere winter. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 7765 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to La Cote Sauvage, located 33 km away (21 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 La Cote Sauvage blows from the W. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at La Cote Sauvage. Converseley, 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 northern hemisphere winter, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 6% of the time (5 days each northern hemisphere winter) and blows offshore 33% of the time (29 days in an average northern hemisphere winter). Over an average northern hemisphere winter winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 15 days at La Cote Sauvage

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.
