Statistiques de Vent de Despretes, moyennes sur Printemps depuis 2006

This picture shows how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal southern hemisphere spring. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue implies the strength, with dark blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 8476 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Despretes, located 23 km away (14 miles). There are insufficient 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 Despretes blows from the SSW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Despretes. Converseley, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical southern hemisphere spring, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 12% of the time (11 days each southern hemisphere spring) and blows offshore 26% of the time (20 days in an average southern hemisphere spring). Over an average southern hemisphere spring winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 2 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Despretes

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.
