Cannon Beach/TolovanaBeach Swell Statistics, Novembre: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Cannon Beach/TolovanaBeach 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 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 biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was WSW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the S. 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 24% of the time, equivalent to 7 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only occur 3% of the time in a typical November, equivalent to just one day but 11% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 11%, equivalent to (3 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Cannon Beach/TolovanaBeach is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Cannon Beach/TolovanaBeach about 24% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 40% of the time. This is means that we expect 19 days with waves in a typical November, of which 7 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.
