Bay of Skaill Wind Statistieken, Zomer gemiddelde vanaf 2006

This picture describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical northern hemisphere summer. The largest 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 7266 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Bay of Skaill, located 11 km away (7 miles). There are too few recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Without question some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3.

According to the model, the prevailing wind at Bay of Skaill blows from the WNW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Bay of Skaill. On the other hand, dominant spokes represent favoured directions, and the more deep blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average northern hemisphere summer, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 7% of the time (6 days each northern hemisphere summer) and blows offshore 29% of the time (25 days in an average northern hemisphere summer). In a typical northern hemisphere summer winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 5 days at Bay of Skaill

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.
