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?

 


NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MARINE PRODUCTS VIA
NOAA TELEPHONE RECORDINGS

Many National Weather Service forecast offices offer recorded marine and local forecasts as found on NOAA Weather radio. These numbers may usually be found in the telephone directory white/blue pages under "United States Government"; "Commerce Department"; "National Weather Service". For further information, contact your local National Weather Service Forecast Office and see table below.

The National Data Buoy Center now offers a Dial-A-Buoy service.  Mariners can now hear the latest coastal and offshore weather observations using  Dial-A-Buoy.  Dial-A-Buoy also can read the latest NWS marine forecast, by zone,  for most station locations. Dial-A-Buoy provides wind and wave measurements taken within the last hour at 65 buoy and 54 Coastal-Marine Automated Network (C-MAN) stations.  The stations are located in the Atlantic, Pacific, Gulf of Mexico, and the Great Lakes and are operated by the National Data Buoy Center (NDBC).   NDBC, a part of the National Weather Service (NWS),  created Dial-A-Buoy to give  mariners an easy way to obtain the reports via a cellular or satellite telephone.

The Physical Oceanographic Real-Time System (PORTS®) offers toll-free numbers to obtain the latest water level, meteorological and temperature data for 18 different port areas.
