Weather & Sea Conditions
The NOAA National Data Buoy Center (NDBC) maintains a network of data buoys and coastal stations along the entire US coast and various locations
internationally. At the NDBC website, data from these various buoys is available for download by the general public. One of these buoys is located inside of
Gray's Reef NMS. Data available from this buoy includes sea surface conditions such as wind speed and direction, wave height, dominant wave period, average
wave period, air temperature, water temperature and atmospheric pressure.
