Computer-generated extratropical storm surge model guidance from the National Weather Service's Meteorological Development Laboratory are available in text form for the East Coast, Gulf of Mexico, and Norton Sound. Experimental versions for the Northwest Coast and Arctic Alaska are also available. Note that the forecast values are presented in tenths of a foot! If you have any questions related to actual forecasts of water level, contact your local National Weather Service Forecast Office

Click HERE to see coverage for each of the storm surge models. The winds and pressures needed to drive this surge model are taken from one of the NWS's atmospheric forecast models, the Aviation Model (AVN).

Experimental, computer generated, Extratropical Water Level Forecasts (Status maps are provided to give the user a quick overview of a region) and Probabilistic Hurricane Storm Surge Forecasts are also available.

This page under continuous construction.  Please excuse our dust.  Several listed products may not be in existence.  Links not yet available for all products.  Linked data may not represent the latest forecast.  The Internet is not part of the National Weather Service's operational data stream and should never be relied upon as a means to obtain the latest forecast and warning data. Please read our disclaimer.

Text and graphic descriptions of NWS marine warning and forecast areas are available . Coastal and offshore forecast areas are subdivided into separate zones, each identified by a Universal Generic Code(UGC). NWS marine forecast products, separated by zone, are available at, http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/marine/textzones.htm

CAUTION - Remember to hit the "RELOAD/REFRESH" button on your webbrowser or you may be recalling data from memory rather than downloading the latest forecast.

For details on changes to NWS products, visit the Office of Climate, Water, and Weather Services Service Change Notifications, NWS Data Product Change Management, and NWS Telecommunication Operations Center (TOC) Data Management Change Notices webpages.

Information on NWS marine radiofax charts may be found on the Marine Charts webpage. Radiofax charts are normally available via Internet shortly before their scheduled broadcast time, however, they may be available up to several hours earlier in certain instances.

In the event of major system outages, please contact our Systems Operations Center at 301-713-0902. Please be specific as possible about the problem you are experiencing and the exact URL which is giving you difficulties, e.g. http://weather.nws.noaa.gov/.....

NWS marine forecasts with URL links containing "noaa.gov" are available via the World Wide Web (HTTP), FTP or e-mail. For example highseas forecast "HSFAT1" may be obtained as follows:

Via the World Wide Web: http://weather.noaa.gov/pub/data/raw/fz/fznt01.kwbc.hsf.at1.txt

Via FTP: ftp://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/data/raw/fz/fznt01.kwbc.hsf.at1.txt

Hint: Forecasts may often be obtained more quickly and reliably using FTP rather than the World Wide Web. Most webbrowsers support using FTP addresses, however, you must type in the full address.
