Currents Forecast Guidance
This near surface currents velocity animation was created from the latest WCOFS forecast guidance in the West Coast. The forecast is for the next 48 hours of current velocities as simulated by WCOFS when it is forced by forecast products from the National Weather Service's North American Model (NAM) and Global operational Real-Time Ocean Forecast System (RTOFS).
