Statistiques de Houle pour Yokohama Bay, Printemps: 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 northern hemisphere spring and is based upon 6580 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was NW, whereas the the prevailing 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 41% of the time, equivalent to 37 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only arise 0.8% of the time in a typical northern hemisphere spring, equivalent to just one day but 14% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 14%, equivalent to (13 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected 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 41% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 5% of the time. This is means that we expect 42 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere spring, of which 37 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.
