Estadísticas de Olas para Imbacai, Primavera: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Imbacai that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere spring and is based upon 8476 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red represents the largest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SSE, whereas the the most common 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 0.2% of the time, equivalent to 0 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal southern hemisphere spring. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Imbacai is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Imbacai about 0.2% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 26% of the time. This is means that we expect 24 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere spring, of which 0 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.
