Nowcast Beach Status

Nowcast predicts water quality conditions at select beach swimming areas in the Great Lakes. Nowcast estimates conditions by merging environment and climate data with variables measured at a beach by 8 AM each morning and entering them into a computer program which provides a probability from 1 to 100 as to whether or not the beach has exceeded the bathing-water standard of 235 units of E....
