Estadísticas de Olas para Ironwood Beach, Invierno: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Ironwood Beach that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal northern hemisphere winter and is based upon 7765 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 represents the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was NNW, whereas the the prevailing 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 30% of the time, equivalent to 27 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 1.5% of the time in a typical northern hemisphere winter, equivalent to just one day but 15% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 15%, equivalent to (14 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds we think that that clean surf can be found at Ironwood Beach about 30% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 46% of the time. This is means that we expect 69 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 27 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.
