Huron Erie Connecting Waterways Forecasting System, HECWFS

NOTICE: This HECWFS site is being transitioned and upgraded to the next-generation at https://www.glerl.noaa.gov/res/glcfs/hecwfs/. Upgrades include a newer version of FVCOM (3.1.6 -> 4.3.1), river inflows derived from the National Water Model and more realistic river temperatures derived from stream gages. On September 30, 2021, this old HECWFS site will be retired.
