All Swells

(any wind direction)

The figure illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical April. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 3360 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Gull Rock, located 51 km away (32 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 prevailing wind at Gull Rock blows from the WSW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Gull Rock. On the other hand, dominant spokes show 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 4% of the time (1 days each April) and blows offshore just 12% of the time (1 days in an average April). In a typical April wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Gull Rock
