Jenkinsons (Point Pleasant Beach) Swell Statistics, Janeiro: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Jenkinsons (Point Pleasant Beach) that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical January. It is based on 2868 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 represents highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was E, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the WNW. 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 11% of the time, equivalent to 3 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal January. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Jenkinsons (Point Pleasant Beach) is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Jenkinsons (Point Pleasant Beach) about 11% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 13% of the time. This is means that we expect 7 days with waves in a typical January, of which 3 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.
