Annascaul Rivermouth Swell Statistics, Gennaio: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Annascaul Rivermouth that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal January. It is based on 2620 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 red shows the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was WSW (which was the same as the prevailing 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 5% of the time, equivalent to 2 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only occur 1.7% of the time in a typical January, equivalent to just one day. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Annascaul Rivermouth is quite sheltered from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Annascaul Rivermouth about 5% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 59% of the time. This is means that we expect 20 days with waves in a typical January, of which 2 days should be clean enough to surf.

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.
