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

This image shows only the swells directed at Doughmore that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere autumn and is based upon 3672 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red represents the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was WNW, whereas the the dominant 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 19% of the time, equivalent to 17 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only occur 1.3% of the time in a typical northern hemisphere autumn, equivalent to just one day but 9% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 9%, equivalent to (8 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Doughmore is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Doughmore about 19% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 51% of the time. This is means that we expect 64 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere autumn, of which 17 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.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
