Beware of hypothermia during these cooler months. Did you know your body can cool 25 times faster in water than in air? That water does not need to be very cold to endanger you?

What is a "Marine Zone Forecast"?
What is a "Marine Point Forecast"?

How can I get a marine forecast via zip, city, or lat/lon?

Did you know that the height of some individual waves may be twice the height of the forecast seas? And may present an even greater danger near shore?

NOAA WEATHER RADIO AT U.S. COAST GUARD SITES IN ALASKA
 

To expand NOAA Weather Radio coverage in the State of Alaska, the National Weather Service (NWS) and U.S. Coast Guard are partnering to establish a network of low-power five-watt NOAA Weather Radio transmitters at 25 USCG "high" sites located from the Dixon Entrance to Bristol Bay. These low power transmitters will operate on standard NWR frequencies under joint licensing with the NWS. The NWS will provide a continuous broadcast audio stream containing the standard NOAA Weather Radio weather information using the NWS automated voice system.

All NWS marine forecasts rely heavily on the Voluntary Observing Ship (VOS) program for obtaining meteorological observations.
