Statistiques de Vent de Moreton Island - Yellow Patch, moyennes sur Août depuis 2006

The graph illustrates how often and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal August. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with deep blue strongest. It is based on 2480 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Moreton Island - Yellow Patch, located 15 km away (9 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 Moreton Island - Yellow Patch blows from the ENE. If the rose graph shows a fairly circular pattern, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Moreton Island - Yellow Patch. On the other hand, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical August, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 4% of the time (1 days each August) and blows offshore just 20% of the time (1 days in an average August). Over an average August wind stronger than >40kph (25mph) was predicted for only a single days at Moreton Island - Yellow Patch

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.
