New Surf Zone Forecast Available
May 30, 2007
Heading out to a Southern New England South Coast Beach this summer? Not before
you check out the
Surf Zone Forecast for the ocean beaches of Rhode Island and
Southeast Massachusetts. This new product contains all the weather info you need
to plan your day at the beach including, sky, temperature, wind, UV Index, wave height
and water temperature. Most importantly, it contains the Threat of Lightning and the
Risk of Rip Currents.
The following is a link to the official NWS Snowfall Measurement Policy:
Snow Measurement Guidelines.
Please note that while giving your reports to the office every few inches still is the local
reporting criteria, it is important to not clear off your measuring surface
for 6 hours. Taking a new value every 2 hours and clearing it off, for
example, will give inflated reports.
Our local climate page has been redesigned and moved as a part of a national standardization effort.
A transition document (PDF) is available to show where information
from our old climate page is located on the new climate page.
