Icing Conditions

In an effort to improve freezing spray forecasts, NOAA is collaborating with Environment Canada to evaluate each country’s freezing spray forecast models and tools.  Analysis of freezing spray cases, forecaster feedback, and ship observations will allow Environment Canada and NOAA scientists and forecasters to better predict dangerous freezing spray conditions to protect life and property at sea.  NOAA requests that you help in their study by reporting icing conditions using the following web-based link:
