Zeneta Wind Statistics, January averages since 2006

This picture describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal January. The largest 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 dark blue. It is based on 2620 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Zeneta, located 32 km away (20 miles). There are not enough 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 Zeneta blows from the NW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Zeneta. On the other hand, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical January, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 31% of the time (10 days each January) and blows offshore 39% of the time (12 days in an average January). Over an average January winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 1 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Zeneta

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.
