Islote Zarate Wind Statistics, April averages since 2006

The figure describes how commonly 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 suggests the strength, with the strongest winds shown by dark blue. It is based on 2640 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Islote Zarate, located 18 km away (11 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 Islote Zarate blows from the SSW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Islote Zarate. Converseley, dominant spokes show 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 3% of the time (1 days each April) and blows offshore just 5% of the time (2 days in an average April). In a typical April wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Islote Zarate

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.
