All Swells

(any wind direction)

This chart shows how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal February. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies 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 Hornitos, located 20 km away (12 miles). There are insufficient recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. No doubt some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the most common wind at Hornitos blows from the WSW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Hornitos. On the other hand, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 15% of the time (4 days each February) and blows offshore 15% of the time (3 days in an average February). Over an average February winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 1 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Hornitos
