All Swells

(any wind direction)

The graph describes how commonly 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 indicates the strength, with dark blue strongest. It is based on 3120 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to The Rock-Costa Azul, located 21 km away (13 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 prevailing wind at The Rock-Costa Azul blows from the SSW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at The Rock-Costa Azul. 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 February, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 15% of the time (4 days each February) and blows offshore 30% of the time (8 days in an average February). During a typical February winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 0 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at The Rock-Costa Azul
