Winchesteer Bay/Umpqua Jetty Wind Statistics, April averages since 2006

This picture shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical April. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 2640 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Winchesteer Bay/Umpqua Jetty, located 30 km away (19 miles). There are insufficient recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Invevitably some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3.

According to the model, the dominant wind at Winchesteer Bay/Umpqua Jetty blows from the W. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Winchesteer Bay/Umpqua Jetty. On the other hand, 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 April, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 13% of the time (4 days each April) and blows offshore 20% of the time (6 days in an average April). In a typical April winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Winchesteer Bay/Umpqua Jetty

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.
