Balephetrish (Tiree) Swell Statistics, Novembre: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Balephetrish (Tiree) that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical November and is based upon 2793 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 largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was W, whereas the the most common wind blows from the WSW. 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 30% of the time, equivalent to 9 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 6% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Balephetrish (Tiree) is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Balephetrish (Tiree) about 30% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 50% of the time. This is means that we expect 24 days with waves in a typical November, of which 9 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.
