Regional Hydrodynamic Model Outputs of the NOAA Lake Michigan Operational Forecast System (LMOFS)

Metadata Updated: August 12, 2023

The Lake Michigan Operational Forecast System (LMOFS) is a NOAA project aimed at providing improved predictions of water levels, currents and water temperatures in Lake Michigan to the user communities. Similar systems are operational in the other 4 Great Lakes as well. Collectively these form the Great Lakes Operational Forecast System (GLOFS). The objective of GLOFS is to produce nowcast and forecast guidance (displayed out to 24 hours) of total water level, current velocity, and water temperatures in the Lakes to be used by the commercial shipping, recreational boating and emergency response communities.
