Statistiques de Houle pour Drummonds, Mai: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Drummonds that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal May. It is based on 2838 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 show increasing swell sizes and largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SW, whereas the the most common 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 52% of the time, equivalent to 16 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 2% of the time in a typical May, equivalent to just one day but 21% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 21%, equivalent to (7 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Drummonds is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Drummonds about 52% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 48% of the time. This is means that we expect 31 days with waves in a typical May, of which 16 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.
