Weather and Tides

Conditions in central and northern California are constantly changing and before planning an activity to one of the wonderful destinations in the Sanctuaries, it will be helpful to check the current conditions. Below are a list of links for current weather and tides for central and northern California. Investigating these sites will provide many more links to other areas of relevant information.

A comprehensive list of oceanographic and meteorological data available in the central and northern California coastal region is available on the CeNCOOS oceanObs inventory website.
