Estadísticas de Viento para Inskip Point, Promedio de Invierno desde 2006

The graph describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal southern hemisphere winter. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with dark blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 8738 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Inskip Point, located 48 km away (30 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 Inskip Point blows from the ENE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Inskip Point. Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical southern hemisphere winter, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 4% of the time (4 days each southern hemisphere winter) and blows offshore just 12% of the time (10 days in an average southern hemisphere winter). Over an average southern hemisphere winter winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 2 days at Inskip Point

IMPORTANT: Beta version feature! Swell heights are open water values from NWW3. There is no attempt to model near-shore effects. Coastal wave heights will generally be less, especially if the break does not have unobstructed exposure to the open ocean.
