Notice: The upgraded Northern Gulf of Mexico Operational Forecast System (NGOFS2) is becoming operational on 02/23/2021 12:00 (UTC). For more information, please refer to the Service Change Notice.
NGOFS, NEGOFS, and NWGOFS will be decommissioned after 02/23/2021.
All model nowcast and forecast information is based on a hydrodynamic model and should be considered as computer-generated nowcast and forecast guidance.
This wind time series was created from the surface forcing data of the latest NGOFS nowcast and forecast runs. The winds were created by spatially and temporally interpolating the wind products from the National Weather Service's (NWS) operational North American Mesoscale weather forecast model. These interpolated wind fields were used by NGOFS to generate oceanographic nowcast and forecast guidance.
