Whitsand Bay and Tregantle Wind Statistics, September averages since 2006

The figure shows how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical September. The longest 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 2400 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Whitsand Bay and Tregantle, located 42 km away (26 miles). There are insufficient 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 Whitsand Bay and Tregantle blows from the WSW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Whitsand Bay and Tregantle. Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average September, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 7% of the time (2 days each September) and blows offshore 18% of the time (4 days in an average September). During a typical September winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Whitsand Bay and Tregantle

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.
