The NEW Beach Forecast Page: www.crh.noaa.gov/grb/?n=beach
A new Recreational Beach Forecast will be issue a daily by the NWS in Green Bay beaches on Lake Michigan from Rock Island to Manitowoc each morning at 5 A.M., so potential beach-goers have ample time to plan their day. This forecast will give information about that day's expected beach conditions including air and water temperature, wind speed and direction, and wave heights. In addition to the daily forecasts, each day will be assigned a "swim risk." The risk level is associated with waves and currents at the shore.
