Operational Forecasts for Pt. Sal — NOW LIVE

The experimental operational forecasts for Pt. Sal are now live on a web portal. 

http://www.oces.us/onr click on the tab “LATEST” to see the movies and bookmark for easy access on smartphones.

From this webpage you will be able to do the following:

  • Watch animations of a 2-day forecast (click on the “LATEST” tab)

  • A brief description of the experimental forecast setup is provided on the main page. More details will be posted on the DRI Modeling website 

A special thanks to the GT/UCSC/UCSD modeling team for their efforts.
