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