Statistiques de Vent de Itapuca, moyennes sur Printemps depuis 2006

This image illustrates how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical southern hemisphere spring. 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 deep blue. It is based on 8476 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Itapuca, located 16 km away (10 miles). There are too few recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Invevitably some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3.

According to the model, the most common wind at Itapuca blows from the SE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Itapuca. 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 southern hemisphere spring, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 27% of the time (25 days each southern hemisphere spring) and blows offshore 66% of the time (0 days in an average southern hemisphere spring). In a typical southern hemisphere spring winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 2 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Itapuca

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.
