Today:

This morning will start grey and damp. The rain will clear during the morning and we will all get warm sunshine in the middle of the day. However, more rain will arrive in the far west late in the afternoon. Maximum Temperature 16 °C.

Tonight:

The rain will spread further east during the evening with some heavy bursts soon after dark. It will stay mild with clear periods later but also some showers. Minimum Temperature 9 °C.

Saturday:

Appropriately for the start of April, sunshine and showers will dominate Saturday's weather, including some heavy downpours. The southerly breeze will die down and it will become a little cooler. Maximum Temperature 14 °C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

After a chilly start, Sunday will become bright, warm and dry. Monday will be similar but breezier. Tuesday will probably be cloudier with a touch of drizzle in the air.

What are tides?

Tides refer to the rise and fall of a body of water, most commonly seen in the oceans; caused by the interaction between the moon, sun and Earth.

As the positions of Earth, sun and moon change in relation to each other, the gravitational pull and centrifugal forces acting upon the oceans vary and it is these differences that cause fluctuation in the height of the sea which we see at the tides going out and in.

In the UK we mostly experience a semi-diurnal tide which means we experience two high tides and two low tides each day. These occur approximately every 12 hours and 25 minutes.
