NOAA Improves Marine and Weather Forecast Models for the Great Lakes
NOAA is now using enhanced weather and marine forecast models for the Great Lakes that will extend forecasts from 36 hours to
60 hours into the future to better serve commercial and recreational mariners, the shipping industry, emergency responders, water resource managers
and the private weather industry.

NOAA’s National Ocean Service, which predict currents, water level and water temperature, is now running on NOAA’s National Weather
