This is NOT a complete listing of NWS marine forecast products for this area. See the NWS Marine Weather Services homepage which contains information on the dissemination of NWS marine weather forecasts including frequency and broadcast schedule information as well as links to products and related information.

National Weather Service Coastal and Offshore forecast products listed on this webpage are subdivided by zone, each identified by a Universal Generic Code(UGC) e.g. ANZ050, and a Special Area Messaging Encoder (SAME) code, e.g. 073050. SAME codes are used to program SAME-capable NOAA Weather Radio receivers to receive alert messages for user-specified areas.

A graphic version of this page is available. The entire text of these forecasts may be found at NWS Marine Text Forecasts and Products Listing or the low-bandwidth-friendly NWS Marine Text Forecasts, Radiofax Charts, Buoy/C-MAN Obs, Tides page which also serve as alternate sources of data.

These forecasts are also available via e-mail
