    Default new (but not improved?) online marine forecasts

    So, apparently NOAA has changed around their web-based marine forecasts. I've had the North Gulf Coast marine forecast bookmarked for years but now it seems you can only pull up one zone at a time and my old bookmark now returns a "page not found" error. Has anyone found a new link to the marine forecast that includes all the different zones for the NGC waters?

    Thanks Stid, not the buoy observations, but the 5-day marine forecasts, like this (below) for PWS's zone. My old link used to pull up all the zones across the North Gulf Coast (Suckling to Cleare, Cleare to Gore, PWS, Passage, Res Bay, etc) all listed on one page.

    Today N wind 10 kt becoming SW in the afternoon. Seas 2 ft.
    Tonight SW wind 15 kt becoming NW after midnight. Seas 3 ft.
    Fri
    NW wind 15 kt becoming W 10 kt in the afternoon. Seas 2 ft.
    Fri Night Through Sat
    Variable wind less than 10 kt. Seas 2 ft.
    Sun Through Mon
    SW wind 10 kt. Seas 2 ft.

    Try this one: http://www.weather.gov/afc/newsitehelp then click on "where are the text products located". There it will show you two ways to access the text forecasts.

    I like the new layout. But the graphical section down at the bottom of the page is really slow to use.

    Here is a different site I like.
    http://portal.aoos.org/real-time-sensors.php#map?lg=8c5dd704-59ad-11e1-bb67-0019b9dae22b&p=proj3857&b=google_hybrid

    In the Legend Box. Under Sensor use the drop down for different info.
    I use the last one "wind speed and direction"
    After you click on wind speed then click on the location you want info for.
