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

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Ballycastle that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical May and is based upon 1952 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours show increasing wave sizes. The smallest swells, less than 0.5m (1.5 feet), high are coloured blue. Green and yellow show increasing swell sizes and red illustrates highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was WNW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the SSW. 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 1.4% of the time, equivalent to 0 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal May. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Ballycastle is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Ballycastle about 1.4% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 20% of the time. This is means that we expect 7 days with waves in a typical May, of which 0 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.
