Carcavelos Wind Statistieken, July gemiddelde vanaf 2006

The figure describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal July. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the strongest winds shown by dark blue. It is based on 2480 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Carcavelos, located 24 km away (15 miles). There are not enough 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 Carcavelos 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 Carcavelos. On the other hand, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical July, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 4% of the time (1 days each July) and blows offshore just 68% of the time (21 days in an average July). Over an average July winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 6 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Carcavelos

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.
