Estadísticas de Olas para Galveston - FlagshipPier, enero: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Galveston - FlagshipPier that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical January. It is based on 2371 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 show increasing swell sizes and highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SE, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the ENE. 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 10% of the time, equivalent to 3 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal January. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Galveston - FlagshipPier is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Galveston - FlagshipPier about 10% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 36% of the time. This is means that we expect 14 days with waves in a typical January, of which 3 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.
