Offshore Forecasts

Offshore forecasts are produced by the National Weather Service's Ocean Prediction Center and are for oceanic conditions ranging from 20 nautical miles from shore and extending out to 250 nautical miles from shore (though this range may vary by forecast). We provide both Offshore products and NAVTEX which are "an international automated medium frequency direct-printing service." (http://nws.noaa.gov/os/marine/navtex.htm).

If you need forecasts that are within 20 nautical miles of shore, please refer to Coastal Forecasts (under the Wx By State pages).
