(% offshore)

All Swells

(any wind direction)

The rose diagram shows how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical February. 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 deep blue. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Hammerhead, located 33 km away (21 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 dominant wind at Hammerhead blows from the SSW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Hammerhead. 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 February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 23% of the time (6 days each February) and blows offshore 82% of the time (1 days in an average February). In a typical February winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 1 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Hammerhead
