Kitty Hawk Pier Wind Statistieken, Zomer gemiddelde vanaf 2006

The figure shows how frequently and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal northern hemisphere summer. The longest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with the darkest shade of blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 8738 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Kitty Hawk Pier, located 23 km away (14 miles). There are not enough 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 most common wind at Kitty Hawk Pier blows from the SE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Kitty Hawk Pier. 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 northern hemisphere summer, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 9% of the time (8 days each northern hemisphere summer) and blows offshore 37% of the time (31 days in an average northern hemisphere summer). Over an average northern hemisphere summer wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was forecast for only a single days at Kitty Hawk Pier

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.
