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

This image shows only the swells directed at Alnes Lighthouse that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere winter and is based upon 7765 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours illustrate increasing wave sizes. Blue shows the smallest swells, less that 0.5m (1.5 feet) high. Green and yellow illustrate increasing swell sizes and red shows highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was WNW, whereas the the dominant 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 31% of the time, equivalent to 28 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 1.7% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Alnes Lighthouse is slightly protected from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Alnes Lighthouse about 31% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 40% of the time. This is means that we expect 65 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 28 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.
