Estadísticas de Olas para Arugam Bay, mayo: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Arugam Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal May and is based upon 2696 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow represent increasing swell sizes and red represents biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SSE, whereas the the prevailing 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 3% of the time, equivalent to 1 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal May. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Arugam Bay is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Arugam Bay about 3% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 28% of the time. This is means that we expect 10 days with waves in a typical May, of which 1 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.
