Extratropical Water Level Guidance

Data Disclaimer

1) NOT an Operational Product

This site is an EXPERIMENTAL web site. While NWS' Meteorological Development Laboratory's storm surge unit makes every effort to keep this site running, we do not have the resources to guarantee it is as reliable as an operational web site.

2) NOT a Forecast (this is model guidance)

This site is generated through purely computer generated methods so it is guidance. For it to be a forecast there would need to be a human in the loop. Consult your local NWS forecast offices for official storm surge forecasts and any watches and warnings.

3) NOT for Tropical Storms or Hurricanes

During Tropical storms, the water level guidance on these pages does not reflect the official NOAA storm surge forecasts. The model used by this site intended for Extra-Tropical Storm and does not always capture tropical storms well. For Tropical storms, please consult your local NWS forecast offices and the National Hurricane Center for official storm surge forecasts and any watches and warnings.
