Zorritos Wind Statistics, All Year averages since 2006

This chart shows how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical year. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 28044 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 too few 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 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 represent favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average 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 33% of the time (106 days in an average year). During a typical 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.
