All Swells

(any wind direction)

This picture illustrates how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal April. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the darkest shade of blue strongest. It is based on 3042 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2008, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to The Glen, located 22 km away (14 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 dominant wind at The Glen blows from the NW. If the rose diagram shows a close to circular outline, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at The Glen. 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. During a typical April, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 17% of the time (5 days each April) and blows offshore 31% of the time (3 days in an average April). Over an average April wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at The Glen

We hope you find the new 12-day forecasts and additional details useful.

Kudos to everyone who helped us debug this over the past 3 months.

Be sure to click on the Advanced Surf option to see extra details about the sea-state. Look out for crossing swells and short period local wind swells and chop that will often spoil a groundswell even if the wind is perfect. As yet there is no allowance for this in the swell rating. This is something we are working on.
