Water Temperature Forecast Guidance
This near surface water temperature animation was created from the latest LMHOFS forecast guidance in the Mackinac Straits. The forecast guidance is for the next 120 hours of surface water temperature as simulated by LMHOFS when it is forced by meteorological parameters that are predicted by the National Weather Service models.
