Regional forecast for Wales

Today:

The whole country will have a dry and hot day with plenty of sunshine. That low cloud which hung around Cardigan bay and Anglesey yesterday is not likely to be repeated so warm sunshine will dominate even on the coast. Maximum Temperature 26 °C.

Tonight:

It will stay dry overnight with very little cloud but it will stay very mild everywhere in spite of this. Minimum Temperature 12 °C.

Friday:

Friday will be dry, sunny and hot again everywhere. The sunshine may become a bit hazy later in the day as very high cloud spreads in from the west. Maximum Temperature 27 °C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Heavy, thundery showers in the south will spread northwards during the morning. Sunday and Monday will be less hot with sunny spells and perhaps further rain in 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.
