A new user defined forecast is available on our website. You can find it on the left hand menu under Forecasts --> User Defined Area (circled below).
Clicking on "User Defined Area" will lead you to an experimental webpage (shown below). Here you are able to draw your own area of interest on a Google map and obtain a forecast for that area. Instructions on how to draw an area of interest on the map are included on the webpage.
The resultant area forecast will appear like the example shown below featuring daily forecast information in text and tabular format.
You can obtain a user defined forecast for any location across the country. Since the new forecast option is experimental, the User Defined Area link is only availabe on Central Region forecast office webpages. Click here to see a map of NWS Central Region forecast offices.
