Statistiques de Vent de Macauleys, moyennes sur Été depuis 2006

The figure describes how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions through a typical southern hemisphere summer. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue indicates the strength, with deep blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 7765 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Macauleys, located 34 km away (21 miles). There are insufficient 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 prevailing wind at Macauleys blows from the SE. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Macauleys. On the other hand, dominant spokes represent 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 summer, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 9% of the time (8 days each southern hemisphere summer) and blows offshore 21% of the time (18 days in an average southern hemisphere summer). During a typical southern hemisphere summer winds stronger than >40kph (25mph) are expected on 4 days at Macauleys

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.
