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 animation was created from the latest LEOFS nowcast for the Lake Erie. The hourly fields were created by spatially interpolating the wind products from the latest run of the National Weather Service's 3-km, hourly updated High-Resolution Rapid Refresh (HRRR) atmospheric model. These interpolated wind fields were used by LEOFS to generate oceanographic nowcasts.
