Estadísticas de Olas para Aberavon, Otoño: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Aberavon that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere autumn. It is based on 7250 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours illustrate increasing wave sizes. Blue shows the smallest swells, less that 0.5m (1.5 feet) high. Green and yellow show increasing swell sizes and largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was WSW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the SW. The chart at the bottom shows the same thing but without direction information. For example, swells larger than 1.5 feet (0.5m) coincided with good wind conditions 11% of the time, equivalent to 10 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal northern hemisphere autumn. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Aberavon is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Aberavon about 11% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 62% of the time. This is means that we expect 66 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere autumn, of which 10 days should be surfable.

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.
