Otago Peninsula - Sandfly Bay Wind Statistics, Ottobre averages since 2006

This picture illustrates how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal October. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the darkest shade of blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 2976 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Otago Peninsula - Sandfly Bay, located 16 km away (10 miles). There are too few recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Without question some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3.

According to the model, the prevailing wind at Otago Peninsula - Sandfly Bay blows from the S. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Otago Peninsula - Sandfly Bay. Converseley, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical October, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 7% of the time (2 days each October) and blows offshore 30% of the time (9 days in an average October). Over an average October winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 4 days at Otago Peninsula - Sandfly 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.
