This circuit of warming and cooling is a small, self-contained weather system in its own right and it usually starts up after midday when the land has warmed up considerably. There are two things to note about sea breezes. The first is that they are only likely to be felt up to about 8km (5 miles) offshore. Secondly, their effect on the prevailing wind will depend on the direction of this prevailing wind. If it is coming in off the sea and blowing towards the shore, then it will be strengthened by the sea breeze.
This is because the airflow gets compressed as it is squeezed around the headland and this will increase the speed of the flow. A final factor to consider is that the coast station may be located on an upward slope of land and again this will tend to increase the wind speed if the wind is coming in off the sea. All these factors tend to increase the wind speed recorded at a coast station so that wind reports from these locations will generally give a higher wind speed than may exist in the open sea – possibly as much as 10 knots higher, although this may not always be the case.
If you stand with your back to the direction of the wind and the land is on your right-hand side, you can expect the coastal winds to be stronger. With the land on your left, expect weaker winds. To a certain extent, this will seem rather like the effect you can get with sea breezes. The big difference between the two types of wind is that with convergent and divergent winds, the increases and decreases in wind speed are not dependent on the time of day; however sea breezes are, and you can encounter them during both day and night.
