All Swells

(any wind direction)

This chart describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical January. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the strongest winds shown by deep blue. It is based on 3364 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Rucos, located 42 km away (26 miles). There are too few 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 Rucos blows from the SSW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Rucos. On the other hand, 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 January, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 17% of the time (5 days each January) and blows offshore 20% of the time (6 days in an average January). During a typical January winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 1 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Rucos
