All Swells

(any wind direction)

This picture illustrates how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical June. The longest 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 2786 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to 81st Street, located 45 km away (28 miles). There are too few 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 prevailing wind at 81st Street blows from the ESE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at 81st Street. 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 June, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 9% of the time (3 days each June) and blows offshore 43% of the time (12 days in an average June). During a typical June winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 4 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at 81st Street
