Devils Lake Wave Forecasts Added to Our Website

Posted:

The National Weather Service Office in Grand Forks North Dakota invites you to visit the new “Lake Wind-Wave Forecast” web page for the three major lakes in our forecast area; Devils Lake, Upper and Lower Red Lakes, and Lake of the Woods. The forecasts are given as a series of maps for each 3 hours covering the next 2 days. The forecast shows the significant wave heights* over the lakes and the 10-meter winds the model uses to generate them. The wind-wave forecast will be updated when the weather forecast is updated, usually 3 times a day. Currently, it is based on the 5-kilometer weather grids but will be upgraded to use the higher-resolution 2.5 km grids in early September. Visit the page
