Estadísticas de Olas para Ilha dos Lobos, diciembre: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Ilha dos Lobos that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical December. It is based on 2705 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 illustrates highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was ESE, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the E. 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 14% of the time, equivalent to 4 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal December. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Ilha dos Lobos is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Ilha dos Lobos about 14% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 66% of the time. This is means that we expect 24 days with waves in a typical December, of which 4 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.
