The forecasts are provided by NOAA National Weather Service (NWS) Mobile Bay Area Weather Forecast Office and by the National Ocean Service (NOS) Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS) Northern Gulf of Mexico Operational Forecast System (NGOFS2). The water level observation data is from the NOS/CO-OPS Mobile Bay PORTS®.
