Estadísticas de Olas para Derrynane, diciembre: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Derrynane that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal December and is based upon 2705 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red shows largest 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 dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SW (which was the same as the most common wind direction). 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 5% of the time, equivalent to 2 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal December. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Derrynane is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Derrynane about 5% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 42% of the time. This is means that we expect 14 days with waves in a typical December, of which 2 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.
