Statistiques de Houle pour Dead Zone, Septembre: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Dead Zone that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal September. It is based on 2880 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 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 prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was WNW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the N. 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 43% of the time, equivalent to 13 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal September but 15% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 15%, equivalent to (4 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds we think that that clean surf can be found at Dead Zone about 43% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 48% of the time. This is means that we expect 27 days with waves in a typical September, of which 13 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.
