Water Temperature Forecast Guidance
This water temperature animation depicts forecasted hourly surface water temperature for the next 30 hours. The hourly water temperature fields were created by spatially and temporally interpolating wind forecast guidance from the National Weather Service's operational NAM atmospheric forecast model. These hourly water temperature fields were used by LOOFS' hydrodynamic model to generate oceanographic forecast guidance for the Lake Ontario out to 30 hours.
