Notice: The upgraded FVCOM-based Lake Erie Operational Forecast System (LEOFS) is becoming operational on 2016/05/03 12:00 (UTC). LEOFS model products and graphics on this page and Thredds server will be switched to use the new upgraded system starting from 2016/05/03 12:00 (UTC) model run. The POM-based LEOFS model output on Thredds server will not be available after 2016/05/03 12:00 (UTC). For more information on the upgrade, please refer to the Technical Information Notice.
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 LEOFS 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 to generate oceanographic nowcast and forecast guidance.
