Coastal and Great Lakes forecasts are subdivided by zone, each identified by text description and a Universal Generic Code (UGC). The text of these forecasts is online at NWS Marine Text Forecasts and Products Listing, which also serves as an alternate source of data. These forecasts are produced by local National Weather Service Forecast Offices. This page is also available in a text version which includes a synopsis for most of these areas. Similar webpages for Offshore Marine Forecasts by Zone and High Seas Forecasts are also available. These forecasts are also available via e-mail
For a complete listing of marine forecast products, see the Marine Forecasts, which offers frequency and broadcast schedule information as well as links to products and related information.
