Estadísticas de Olas para Isle of Palms Pier, enero: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Isle of Palms Pier that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical January and is based upon 2868 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours show increasing wave sizes. The smallest swells, less than 0.5m (1.5 feet), high are coloured 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 frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SE, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the NW. 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 22% of the time, equivalent to 7 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 Isle of Palms Pier is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Isle of Palms Pier about 22% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 33% of the time. This is means that we expect 17 days with waves in a typical January, of which 7 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.
