K-38 Wind Statistics, Gennaio averages since 2006

This image describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical January. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with dark blue strongest. It is based on 2372 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to K-38, located 28 km away (17 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 K-38 blows from the W. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at K-38. By contrast, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average January, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (the lightest shade of blue) about 35% of the time (11 days each January) and blows offshore 52% of the time (16 days in an average January). During a typical January winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 1 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at K-38

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.
