Real Time Data from Buoys

Nicole is predicted to traverse through the South Atlantic Bight. SECOORA, U.S. IOOS and partners support marine weather and wave buoys off the coast of the Carolinas. As the storm moves north, explore mooring stations in North Carolina and South Carolina. The buoys are operated by UNCW Coastal Ocean Research and Monitoring Program.

Watch Nicole via Web Cameras

Check out SECOORA’s network of coastal web cameras. You will be able to see live images as Nicole moves along the coast. These web cameras are a low-cost coastal observing platform transforming how environmental monitoring is conducted. Web camera data has demonstrated value to address significant gaps in the nation’s ability to monitor and accurately forecast various weather, ocean, ecological, and public health hazards.

Follow the Data

Eyes on the Storm is an interactive portal that connects you to live and past hurricane and tropical storm data. The tool pulls data from within 50 miles of a hurricane’s path and showcases the highest wind speeds and wave heights and lowest barometric pressure. 

Marine Weather Portal

Visit the SECOORA Marine Weather Portal (MWP) for up-to-date weather hazards, tropical cyclone forecasts, and observations as Nicole approach’s the southeast. The new National Weather Service Hurricane Threats and Impacts map has been added to the MWP which indicates worse case scenarios for planning purposes.
