Water Temperature Forecast Guidance
This near surface water temperature animation was created from the latest NGOFS forecast guidance in the Northern Gulf of Mexico. The forecast is for the next 48 hours of surface water temperature as simulated by NGOFS when it is forced by forecast products from the National Weather Service's North American Model (NAM) and Extra Tropical Storm Surge (ETSS), and the Global operational Real-Time Ocean Forecast System (RTOFS).
