La Derecha de Almaciga Wind Statistics, Spring averages since 2006

This image describes how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal northern hemisphere spring. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the strongest winds shown by deep blue. It is based on 8052 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to La Derecha de Almaciga, located 20 km away (12 miles). There are insufficient 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 dominant wind at La Derecha de Almaciga blows from the NNW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at La Derecha de Almaciga. 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 northern hemisphere spring, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 8% of the time (7 days each northern hemisphere spring) and blows offshore 10% of the time (10 days in an average northern hemisphere spring). Over an average northern hemisphere spring wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at La Derecha de Almaciga

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.
