“The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Weather Service (NWS) Los Angeles/Oxnard, California, weather forecast office (WFO) is providing gridded weather forecast information to customers in a geographic information system (GIS)-friendly format. Weather forecast information is available as GIS shapefiles and can be brought into a desktop GIS by adding an ArcIMS image service in ArcGIS or ArcGIS Explorer. This service is part of an effort to meet the growing customer and partner demand for weather forecast products in a GIS-compatible format.”
