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

This image shows only the swells directed at Arugam Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal northern hemisphere winter. It is based on 8485 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 red shows biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SSE, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the NNE. 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 19% of the time, equivalent to 17 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal northern hemisphere winter but 10% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 10%, equivalent to (9 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast 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 19% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 10% of the time. This is means that we expect 26 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 17 days should be clean enough to surf.

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.
