Ile de Re - La Couarde/Mer Wind Statistics, June averages since 2006

The figure describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal June. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 2786 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Ile de Re - La Couarde/Mer, located 22 km away (14 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 Ile de Re - La Couarde/Mer blows from the W. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Ile de Re - La Couarde/Mer. On the other hand, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical June, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 12% of the time (4 days each June) and blows offshore 50% of the time (14 days in an average June). Over an average June wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Ile de Re - La Couarde/Mer

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.
