Additional information:

The U.S. Office of Management and Budget requires that all public-facing

update their bookmarks to the new URL:  https://nowcoast.noaa.gov

Other client applications, including JavaScript or FLEX-based web mapping
sites, ArcGIS Online references, and desktop GIS applications with direct
references to the discontinued  http://nowcoast.noaa.gov  address may
experience unexpected behavior.  Thus, *all client applications should be
modified to instead use   https://nowcoast.noaa.gov
