Statistiques de Houle pour Jakes, Mars: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Jakes that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal March and is based upon 2220 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 both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest 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 78% of the time, equivalent to 24 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only arise 1.7% of the time in a typical March, equivalent to just one day but 28% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 28%, equivalent to (9 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Jakes is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Jakes about 78% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 21% of the time. This is means that we expect 31 days with waves in a typical March, of which 24 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.
