Statistiques de Houle pour Moreton Island - Yellow Patch, Novembre: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Moreton Island - Yellow Patch that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical November. It is based on 2849 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 show increasing swell sizes and red shows the largest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). 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 longest spokes, was ENE (which was the same as the most common 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 0.6% of the time, equivalent to 0 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal November. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Moreton Island - Yellow Patch is quite sheltered from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Moreton Island - Yellow Patch about 0.6% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 5% of the time. This is means that we expect 2 days with waves in a typical November, of which 0 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.
