The National Weather Service is experimenting with a new easier to read tabular format of our Great Lakes Open Waters and Nearshore Marine Forecasts. The target audience for these products are users of marine weather information, including the commercial marine community, recreational boating community, and other government agencies including the US Coast Guard.

A side by side comparison of the new format and legacy format is available on this website as well.

Comments on the proposal to implement this enhancement to the Open Waters and Nearshore Marine Forecasts can be provided through the following survey link:

The comment period will be open through November 30, 2019.
