Ardnave Point and Bay (Islay) Wind Statistieken, Zomer gemiddelde vanaf 2006

This picture illustrates how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal northern hemisphere summer. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with dark blue strongest. It is based on 7266 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Ardnave Point and Bay (Islay), located 18 km away (11 miles). There are not enough 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 prevailing wind at Ardnave Point and Bay (Islay) blows from the WNW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Ardnave Point and Bay (Islay). By contrast, dominant spokes illustrate favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical northern hemisphere summer, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 9% of the time (8 days each northern hemisphere summer) and blows offshore 36% of the time (4 days in an average northern hemisphere summer). Over an average northern hemisphere summer winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 7 days at Ardnave Point and Bay (Islay)

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.
