Statistiques de Houle pour Nazare, Août: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Nazare that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal August and is based upon 2480 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow illustrate increasing swell sizes and red represents the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was NW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the NNW. 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 6% of the time, equivalent to 2 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal August. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Nazare is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Nazare about 6% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 55% of the time. This is means that we expect 19 days with waves in a typical August, of which 2 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.
