Regional forecast for South West England

This Evening and Tonight:

Evening sunshine will give way to a dry and clear night with light winds, and once again it will become fairly cool, especially in rural areas. Minimum Temperature 8 °C.

Monday:

Something of a repeat of Sunday, with another dry and sunny day expected. Feeling hot inland, but cooler along the coast where sea breezes develop. Maximum Temperature 27 °C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Dry, sunny and hot for many, but an onshore breeze will keep coasts that bit fresher. Night time temperatures will also increase, especially in built-up areas.

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.
