Wind Stats

(% offshore)

All Swells

(any wind direction)

The graph shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal April. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the strongest winds shown by dark blue. It is based on 3042 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2008, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Castletown, located 68 km away (42 miles). There are not enough 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 Castletown blows from the SSW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Castletown. On the other hand, dominant spokes represent 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 April, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 5% of the time (2 days each April) and blows offshore 9% of the time (0 days in an average April). Over an average April winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Castletown
