Maps Showing Location of Marine Zone ID's Below

 

CLICK HERE for some general information on NOAA Weather Radio as it relates to mariners, including a recommendation of how you may perform NWR/SAME programming to receive warnings of any marine weather event in the general area, rather than having to program the receiver for several neighboring marine zones, e.g. using a SAME code of 096000 for all of Lake Erie. This will also mitigate the need to regularly check this webpage to be sure you have the latest programming information.

Caution! - Mariners should be aware that many marine zones do not extend inland to include tributaries such as rivers and smaller bays. Mariners in these areas should program their NOAA Weather Radio with the SAME geographic code of the appropprite county.

It is further recommended that mariners also program their receivers with the SAME geographic codes of neighboring land and marine areas to maintain a greater level of weather awareness.

Note - Some Great Lakes products generating these SAME codes are seasonal

This listing includes inland stations and other stations where the broadcast coverage may be incomplete or nonexistent for a listed zone.
See Coverage Maps for transmitter coverage.

Open Lake forcasts, and Open Lake MAFORs are not routinely broadcast by NOAA Weather Radio.
These are broadcast where feasible, based on user demand.

L - Open Lake forecast, or Open Lake coded MAFOR. (Open Lake forecast includes synopsis)
G - Generalized forecast broadcast in lieu of forecast for specific zone
# - Used for watch/warning purposes only and not for routine forecasts
W - Watch/warnings broadcast only, not routine forecasts
@ - Routine forecasts broadcast only, not watch/warnings

Although SAME codes exist for Great Lakes MAFOR's, they are not used operationally.

 

CLICK HERE for some general information on NOAA Weather Radio as it relates to mariners, including a recommendation of how you may perform NWR/SAME programming to receive warnings of any marine weather event in the general area, rather than having to program the receiver for several neighboring marine zones.
