All Swells

(any wind direction)

The rose diagram describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical April. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 3359 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Banff, located 37 km away (23 miles). There are insufficient recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Invevitably some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3. According to the model, the most common wind at Banff blows from the NNE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Banff. Converseley, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more deep 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 (light blue) about 4% of the time (1 days each April) and blows offshore just 11% of the time (1 days in an average April). During a typical April wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Banff

We hope you find the new 12-day forecasts and additional details useful.

Kudos to everyone who helped us debug this over the past 3 months.

Be sure to click on the Advanced Surf option to see extra details about the sea-state. Look out for crossing swells and short period local wind swells and chop that will often spoil a groundswell even if the wind is perfect. As yet there is no allowance for this in the swell rating. This is something we are working on.
