Bellochantuy Bay Wind Statistics, Maggio averages since 2006

This chart shows how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical May. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 1952 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2008, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Bellochantuy Bay, located 18 km away (11 miles). There are too few recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. No doubt some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3.

According to the model, the prevailing wind at Bellochantuy Bay blows from the WNW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Bellochantuy Bay. Converseley, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average May, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 6% of the time (2 days each May) and blows offshore 16% of the time (2 days in an average May). In a typical May winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at Bellochantuy Bay

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.
