Castlerock Wind Statistieken, December gemiddelde vanaf 2006

This image illustrates how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical December. 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 2457 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Castlerock, located 39 km away (24 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 Castlerock blows from the WNW. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Castlerock. By contrast, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. Over an average December, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 3% of the time (1 days each December) and blows offshore just 45% of the time (13 days in an average December). In a typical December winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 12 days at Castlerock

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.
