Anna Bay-Morna Point Wind Statistieken, October gemiddelde vanaf 2006
The rose diagram illustrates 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 the darkest shade of blue. It is based on 2480 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Anna Bay-Morna Point, located 25 km away (16 miles). There are too few recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Invevitably some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3.
According to the model, the dominant wind at Anna Bay-Morna Point blows from the ESE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Anna Bay-Morna Point. By contrast, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more deep 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 (the lightest shade of blue) about 5% of the time (2 days each October) and blows offshore 35% of the time (5 days in an average October). In a typical October winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 3 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Anna Bay-Morna Point
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.
