The Island (Island Bay) Wind Statistics, Ottobre averages since 2006

The graph shows how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical October. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with the strongest winds shown by dark blue. It is based on 2976 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to The Island (Island Bay), located 28 km away (17 miles). There are not enough 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 The Island (Island Bay) blows from the S. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at The Island (Island Bay). By contrast, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average October, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 8% of the time (2 days each October) and blows offshore 31% of the time (9 days in an average October). During a typical October winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 3 days at The Island (Island 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.
