Barra do Douro Wind Statistics, Agosto averages since 2006

This chart shows how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal August. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the strongest winds shown by deep blue. It is based on 2976 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Barra do Douro, located 32 km away (20 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 Barra do Douro blows from the WNW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Barra do Douro. On the other hand, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical August, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 14% of the time (4 days each August) and blows offshore 16% of the time (5 days in an average August). Over an average August wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Barra do Douro

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.
