Anse de Cabestan Wind Statistieken, June gemiddelde vanaf 2006
This chart describes how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal June. 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 2306 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Anse de Cabestan, located 11 km away (7 miles). There are insufficient 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 Anse de Cabestan blows from the WSW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Anse de Cabestan. On the other hand, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical June, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 10% of the time (3 days each June) and blows offshore 31% of the time (9 days in an average June). Over an average June wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was expected for only a single days at Anse de Cabestan
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.
