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 or any shallow waters?

 

NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MARINE PRODUCTS VIA U.S. COAST GUARD AIS Broadcast

The National Weather Service uses historic AIS to assess ship avoidance practices during hazardous weather and weather warnings. This work is expected to expand to include the integration of real-time weather and vessel positions. NOAA uses AIS data to monitor and analyze fishing activity, improve marine mammal protection, and prioritize charting and surveying activities based on measured traffic volumes.

In early 2019, NOAA began working on a pilot project which will utilize AIS to transmit automated weather observations from ships. The objective is to expand observations and improve the quality of weather forecasts. NOAA also hopes to push environmental data out to ships along the coast via AIS to promote safe navigation.
