62029 Spectral Forecast

About Spectra

The NWW3 wave model outputs, for selected locations, complete information about all swells forecast over time.

Each circle is a snapshot of a time over the next six days, in the center is the wind strength and direction arrow. The circle represents the compass. A swell from the North will appear in the bottom half of the circle, a swell from the West in the right hand side (so the direction the swell is heading not where it's coming from. The colour represents the size of the swell - the further out from the centre the longer the period.
