Statistiques de Houle pour Dunkerque, Février: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Dunkerque that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical February. It is based on 1984 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 largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was NNE, whereas the the most common wind blows from the WSW. 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 5% of the time, equivalent to 1 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal February. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds we estimate that clean surf can be found at Dunkerque about 5% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 25% of the time. This is means that we expect 8 days with waves in a typical February, of which 1 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.
