Northern Gulf of Mexico Operational Forecast System (NGOFS)

Galveston Causeway (g05010)

Effective on May 20, 2020 beginning at 18z Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), two major changes for NOS OFS datasets on THREDDS will be implemented. Please see the Service Change Notice for details

1. Retention period change - Only the most recent 31 days of OFS output files will be available on CO-OPS THREDDS.

2. File structure changes - To improve THREDDS performance related to file access and data aggregation

All model nowcast and forecast information is based on a hydrodynamic model and should be considered as computer-generated nowcast and forecast guidance.

This wind time series was created from the surface forcing data of the latest NGOFS nowcast and forecast runs. The winds were created by spatially and temporally interpolating the wind products from the National Weather Service's (NWS) operational North American Mesoscale weather forecast model. These interpolated wind fields were used by NGOFS to generate oceanographic nowcast and forecast guidance.
