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

This image shows only the swells directed at Yokohama Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical February. It is based on 2440 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 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 most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was NW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the ENE. 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 62% of the time, equivalent to 17 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 5% of the time in a typical February, equivalent to just one day but 32% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 32%, equivalent to (9 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Yokohama Bay is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Yokohama Bay about 62% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 20% of the time. This is means that we expect 23 days with waves in a typical February, of which 17 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.
