Estadísticas de Olas para Nootka Island (Calvin Bay), febrero: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Nootka Island (Calvin Bay) that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal February and is based upon 2664 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 illustrates biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was WSW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the ESE. 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 28% of the time, equivalent to 8 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only arise 4% of the time in a typical February, equivalent to just one day but 13% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 13%, equivalent to (4 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Nootka Island (Calvin Bay) is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Nootka Island (Calvin Bay) about 28% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 66% of the time. This is means that we expect 26 days with waves in a typical February, of which 8 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.
