Are you wondering where you can check the weather and wind forecasts for Punta Trettu? Here below you can find the best websites for checking the weather and wind forecasts in Punta Trettu.

Anyway, you shall keep in mind that, thanks o the Venturi effect and the local thermal wind, in the period from April to to October, the wind of Mistral (NW) and the wind of Scirocco (SE) in Punta Trettu are often between 5 and 10 knots stronger than what the forecast says. In particular, the Mistral, in the sunny days,could enter with over 10 knots more than the forecasts! In fact, the models of weather forecasts have approximatly 50 km resolution so they can’t predict wind conditions with exact accurancy. In a weather forecast website / model you can see a forecast “in that area” but real wind conditions on a specific spot can be determined by local effects. Locals effect are determined by many factors and just the locals know how are working the thermal winds.

So, our suggestion is to get a service from a local Windsurf / Kitesurf Center in order don’t miss any day of Kitesurfing.

Curiosities about the Wind

Wind that we perceive is basically air in motion that moves through the atmosphere from a zone of greater pressure (less Temperature) to an area of lower Pressure (higher Temperature); the intensity of the wind depends on the distance between the two areas and theirs pressure difference.

Wind is measured by giving direction, orientation and speed:

  • direction is expressed as an angle with respect to the North
  • speed is usually expressed in m/s, but wind speed is expressed in knots that corresponds to a marine mile ≡ 1,862 Km per hour.

1 knot = 1.862 km/hour
