GOODS: Downloading Wind Forecasts

GOODS has links to both point and gridded forecast products produced by NOAA. The gridded products may be regional or may cover the entire globe. In addition to National Weather Service Marine Point Forecasts, you can access wind observations from meteorological buoys through the National Data Buoy Center.

As in the Custom Map Generator, you can choose to cut out the forecast for your region of interest using the Google Maps interface, or you can manually enter a bounding box.
