Estadísticas de Olas para The Strait, noviembre: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at The Strait that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical November. It is based on 2387 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 shows largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was W, whereas the the most common wind blows from the SSE. 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 27% of the time, equivalent to 8 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 10% of the time (3 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that The Strait is quite sheltered from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at The Strait about 27% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 25% of the time. This is means that we expect 16 days with waves in a typical November, of which 8 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.
