MetOcean forecast data web portal
The Marine Forecast Service web portal is a password protected web site hosted and provided by DMI, which has high resolution numerical atmospheric and oceanographic models from DMI as its data basis. With this service, detailed weather information are available for specific locations.
The forecast graphs, tables and charts are updated four times a day and the data is available in hourly resolution the first 48 hours.

Site Forecast and Transit Forecast (written forecast)
Site and Transit Forecasts are carefully prepared written forecasts, including the synoptic situation in terms of lows, highs and fronts, comments regarding confidence level of the forecast and remarks regarding relevant weather conditions according to the operation or transit criteria.
This kind of forecast is beneficial both for sites like an OWF or vessels in transit.
The duty marine forecaster will be up to date with the operational progress and will adjust the written comments accordingly. All written forecasts will be distributed via email.
