All Swells

(any wind direction)

The graph describes how frequently 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 implies the strength, with the strongest winds shown by deep blue. It is based on 3360 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Playa del Barco, located 6 km away (4 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 most common wind at Playa del Barco 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 Playa del Barco. Converseley, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of 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 (the lightest shade of blue) about 0.2% of the time (0 days each April) and blows offshore just 0.8% of the time (0 days in an average April). In a typical April wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Playa del Barco
