NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MOUNT HOLLY NJ  
1151 AM EDT WED JUL 30 2014  
   
..PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
 
 
TODAY THE NATIONAL WEATHER WEATHER SERVICE (NWS) IN MOUNT HOLLY  
UNVEILS A NEW MARINE OBSERVATION PROGRAM.  
 
IT IS POSTED AS ..NEWS HEADLINE.. AT THE TOP OF OUR HOME PAGE  
THROUGH AUGUST 14, AS WELL AS ON OUR MARINE PAGE SELECTIONS AS  
SUBMIT MARINE OBS REPORT.  
 
IT IS SELF EXPLANATORY. AFTER BECOMING FAMILIAR WITH THE OPTIONS  
DURING THE FIRST OBSERVATION ENTRY, IT THEN TAKES LESS THAN A MINUTE  
TO COMPLETE, WITH JUST A FEW REQUIRED ELEMENTS RED STARRED. IF AN  
ELEMENT IS ENTERED INCORRECTLY, YOU WILL BE PROMPTED FOR ANOTHER  
TRY.  
 
WE CANNOT SET IT UP YET TO AUTOMATICALLY ENTER THE DATE/TIME, NOR  
YOUR GPS LATITUDE/LONGITUDE LOCATION.  
 
THE OBSERVATION IS IMMEDIATELY SENT TO THE NWS WHERE FORECASTERS  
CAN REVIEW IT AND CONSIDER ADJUSTMENTS TO OUR COASTAL WATERS  
FORECAST.  
 
UNDERSTANDING VESSEL LOCATION SENSITIVITY, THESE OBSERVATIONS WILL  
NOT BE DISSEMINATED TO THE PUBLIC, UNLESS GRANTED YOUR PERMISSION.  
 
WE HOPE THIS PROGRAM WILL ASSIST NOT ONLY A MORE ACCURATE COASTAL  
WATERS FORECAST BUT ALSO PROVIDE A CLOSER RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE AND THOSE TRANSITING THE NEW JERSEY AND  
DELAWARE COASTAL WATERS.  
 
THE ATTEMPT HERE IS TO PROVIDE IMPROVED SERVICE, BUT THIS CANNOT  
BE DONE WITHOUT YOUR MARINE REPORTS.  
 
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR PARTICIPATING THROUGH YOUR OBSERVATIONS!
