Estadísticas de Olas para Nigg Bay, septiembre: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Nigg Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical September. It is based on 2400 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red represents biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell happens.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SE, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the SW. 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 13% of the time, equivalent to 4 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal September. Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Nigg Bay is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Nigg Bay about 13% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 29% of the time. This is means that we expect 13 days with waves in a typical September, 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.
