NowCOAST provides situational awareness on present and future environmental conditions for coastal and marine users by integrating data and information from across NOAA, other federal agencies and regional ocean and weather observing systems. Users can assess present conditions by creating maps of the latest in-situ weather/marine weather observations for the last few hours. In terms of future conditions, users can obtain maps of critical weather and marine weather advisories, watches, and warnings, weather forecasts, tropical cyclone track and intensity forecasts, and forecast guidance of water levels, temperature, salinity, and currents from oceanographic forecast models.

 Aquaculture application: Current and forecast meteorological products available on NowCOAST help to site and monitoring coastal aquaculture operations.

Contributing Partners: NOAA/NOS
