Gilligans Wind Stats

Wind Stats

(% offshore)

All Swells

(any wind direction)

The graph describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical April. The longest 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 deep blue. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Gilligans, located 16 km away (10 miles). There are insufficient 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 Gilligans blows from the SSW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Gilligans. Converseley, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more dark 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 47% of the time (14 days each April) and blows offshore 53% of the time (16 days in an average April). In a typical April winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 0 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Gilligans
