Augusta Rivermouth Swell Statistics, Março: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Augusta Rivermouth that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical March. It is based on 2964 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red shows highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the dominant 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 6% of the time, equivalent to 2 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal March. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Augusta Rivermouth is slightly protected from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Augusta Rivermouth about 6% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 44% of the time. This is means that we expect 16 days with waves in a typical March, of which 2 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.
