Wind Forecast Guidance
This wind animation depicts forecasted hourly surface (10m above the water) winds for the Mackinac Straits. The hourly wind fields were created by spatially and temporally interpolating wind forecast guidance from the National Weather Service's 0.25 Degree Global Forecast System (GFS). These hourly wind fields were used by LMHOFS to generate oceanographic forecast guidance.
