NOTICE: Effective June 19, 2018 beginning at 17z Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), Nowcast simulations for NYOFS will run every six hours (4 times per day at 05,11,17, 23 UTC) which are same schedule as forecast simulations run. There is no change for forecast simulations.
All model nowcast and forecast information is based on a hydrodynamic model and should be considered as computer-generated nowcast and forecast guidance.
This near surface current velocity animation was created from the latest NYOFS nowcast for the New York/New Jersey. The nowcast is of the most recent current velocities as simulated by NYOFS when it is forced by recent observations and re-analyzed meteorological and oceanographic products.
