Statistiques de Houle pour Delaware Bay (East end), Novembre: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Delaware Bay (East end) that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal November. It is based on 2321 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 shows the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was NW (which was the same as the dominant wind direction). 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 14% of the time, equivalent to 4 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal November. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Delaware Bay (East end) is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Delaware Bay (East end) about 14% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 49% of the time. This is means that we expect 19 days with waves in a typical November, of which 4 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.
