Subject: Marine Forecasts Website will be updated on or around
 September 17, 2019

Effective on or around September 17, 2019, the NWS will update
its marine forecasts website with a new look and URL change. The
website will be named NWS Marine Weather Services and be moved
into the NWS Content Management System. The new web address
will be:
https://www.weather.gov/marine

Currently, the web address https://www.weather.gov/marine
redirects to the address of the current Marine Forecasts home
page: https://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/marine/home.htm

Users who have the current home page address bookmarked, will
have to update their bookmarks to:
https://www.weather.gov/marine

Any bookmark with https://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/marine in its web
address, will need to be updated to:
https://www.weather.gov/marine

For example, the current web address for Coastal/Great Lakes
Forecasts by Zone:
https://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/marine/zone/usamz.htm

will change to:
https://www.weather.gov/marine/usamz

The end products for forecasts and warnings will remain the same
but the web addresses to get those products will change as
described above.

After September 17, 2019, the current web address:
https://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/marine/home.htm
will redirect to:
https://www.weather.gov/marine
until December 31, 2019, after which the current web address
will no longer be valid.

To get an idea what the homepage of the NWS Marine Weather
Services will look like, click on the link below:

All of the forecasts, warnings, observations, radiofax charts
and other information about NWS marine services from the current
Marine Forecasts website will be located on the NWS Marine
Weather Services website. The information has been reorganized
and streamlined along with the new display. The site should be
much easier to navigate.
