Regional forecast for North West England

Today:

After a cold start, and a touch of early rural frost, today will be dry and fairly sunny with only a few wisps of cloud. Maximum Temperature 13 °C.

Tonight:

Widespread evening sunshine will be followed by a clear and rather cold night so frost will form anywhere outside the cities, along with a few mist and freezing fog patches. Minimum Temperature -3 °C.

Saturday:

Like today, tomorrow will start cold but soon warm up in widespread sunshine. The wind will be even lighter so temperatures will be higher. Urban areas will feel distinctly warm. Maximum Temperature 17 °C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Sunday will be dry, sunny and warm again after early frost. Monday and Tuesday will stay mostly dry but become increasingly cloudy though some bright spells are likely.

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.
