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.
Currents Forecast Guidance
This near surface currents velocity animation was created from the latest NYOFS forecast guidance in the New York/New Jersey. The forecast is for the next 48 hours of current velocities as simulated by NYOFS 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).
