The National Weather Service needs your help!!! If you spend any time out on the realize the importance of a timely and accurate weather forecast. Unfortunately, we do not have a lot of buoy data out in our coastal waters. Because so many mariners have cellular phone service today, you can help us provide better forecast service if you report Marine conditions to us via cell phone.

The information that we are most interested is the location, sea height, visibility, wind speed and direction.

If interested please contact Frank Nocera at 508.823.1983 or E-mail.

Thank you for your support!
