Air temperature (Celsius)

Sea surface temperature (Celsius)

Dewpoint temperature taken at the same height

as the air temperature measurement.

Sea level pressure (hPa)

Wind speed (m/s)

Wind direction

Peak 5 or 8 second gust speed (m/s)

Significant wave height (meters)

Average wave period (seconds)

Dominant wave period (seconds)

Mean wave direction corresponding to energy of the dominant period (DOMPD).

Station visibility (statute miles)

Pressure Tendency

Water level (in feet above or below Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW))
