Zorritos Wind Statistics, All Year averages since 2006

This chart illustrates how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal year. 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 the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 33260 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Zorritos, located 129 km away (80 miles). There are not enough 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 prevailing wind at Zorritos blows from the WSW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Zorritos. By contrast, 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. During a typical year, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 2% of the time (7 days each year) and blows offshore just 34% of the time (110 days in an average year). Over an average year winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 11 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Zorritos

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.
