Alnes Lighthouse Swell Statistics, Dezembro: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Alnes Lighthouse that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal December and is based upon 2705 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 the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell happens.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was NW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the SSW. 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 29% of the time, equivalent to 9 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only arise 2.0% of the time in a typical December, equivalent to just one day but 15% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 15%, equivalent to (4 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Alnes Lighthouse is slightly protected from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Alnes Lighthouse about 29% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 43% of the time. This is means that we expect 22 days with waves in a typical December, of which 9 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.
