This Evening and Tonight:

Any showers should gradually fade away this evening, leaving largely clear skies across Wales, before thicker cloud and patchy rain spreads into the north later. Under the clear skies in the south, a widespread frost will develop by dawn. Minimum Temperature -2 °C.

Thursday:

A bright but frosty start in the south, otherwise it will be a fairly cloudy day with some patchy rain. Skies may brighten up later though, especially in the north. Maximum Temperature 12 °C.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Apart from the odd shower, Friday and Saturday should be largely dry with some sunshine and feeling less cold. Sunday then may see some rain move up from the south.

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.
