The wind is a thermal wind that is generated by the difference for the cold current coming from Antarctica and the hot land. Which means very regular wind as long as the land is hot so cooler weather and clouds are a bad thing. You can expect about 20-35 knots most days and some days stronger. The wind starts in the morning being offshore but switches to sideshore (more southerly) and picks up significantly by mid day. Summer is the windy season. In the summer it can be very gusty with a range of 15-30 knots.
