Today:

It will be a fine start to Saturday, with sunny spells. However, the cloud will soon bubble up to give a scattering of showers, although some places will escape these altogether. Cloud and rain will arrive in the south later. Maximum Temperature 19 °C.

Tonight:

Cloud and heavy rain moving up from the south during the evening will quickly clear away eastwards overnight. It will become largely dry with clear spells, perhaps the odd shower. Minimum Temperature 12 °C.

Sunday:

Sunday will see a mixture of sunshine and showers throughout the day. The showers will be heavy and possibly thundery in places. A rather cool and breezy day for most. Maximum Temperature 19 °C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Monday will see a mixture of sunshine and showers, heavy in places, with fewer showers during Tuesday. Dry and bright at first on Wednesday, turning wet and windy later.

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.
