SUBJECT: Soliciting comments by March 30, 2012 on plans to      
         replace the Southeastern United States and Gulf
         of Mexico marine weather web portal 
 
NWS is proposing to replace the Southeastern United States 
(SERN US) and Gulf of Mexico (GOM) Marine Weather Web Portal:
 
http://forecast.weather.gov/mwp/
  
This service is being proposed for replacement because NWS 
developers are going to debut a new national and updated 
marine weather web portal that will have many more capabilities 
than the SERN US and GOM Marine Weather Web Portal.  While the 
existing SERN US and GOM portal is limited to just a portion 
of the nation’s coastal waters, the new portal will expand to 
cover all U.S. coastal waters. NWS plans to post an experimental 
version of the new portal this spring 2012.    
 

NWS is requesting comments through March 30, 2012, on plans to

replace the Southeastern United States and Gulf of Mexico Marine

Weather Web Portal with a national product.  Send comments to:

If a decision is made to replace the Southeastern United States 
and Gulf of Mexico Marine Weather Web Portal, a Service Change 
Notice will be issued announcing the effective date.
 
A Service Change Notice also will be released announcing when 
the experimental national marine weather web portal will be 
available to all users.
