Today Saturday, 28th of November of 2015, the sun will rise in Colombo at 6:06 h and sunset will be at 17:51 h. Today we begin the day with the moon already visible in the sky, so first we will see the moonset, which will take place at 8:10 h at 289º west. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the east (72º) at 20:20 h.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide will be at 3:45 h and the next high tide at 15:55 h. The first low tide will be at 10:05 h and the next low tide at 21:45 h.
The lunar phase is a Waning Gibbous. Today we will have 11 hours and 45 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 11:58 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 11 hours and 50 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 85, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 79 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 74. The tide heights today are 0.8 m, 0.1 m, 0.6 m and 0.1 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Colombo which is of 0.9 m and a minimum height of -0.1 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Colombo tells us that today is an average day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is average. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
Tide timetable for Colombo. The times are generated in local time in Sri Lanka. You will also have the lunar phase, sunrise and sunset times, the tidal coefficient and the average fish activity forecast for each day according to the solunar tables:
[ 0 low activity ] , [ average activity ] , [ high activity ] , [ very high activity ]
NOTE: The times reflected in the tide table for Colombo are tide forecasts only valid as references for sport fishing. They shouldn't be used as a guide for navigation. The heights are expressed in meters referenced to Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW).
MLLW is the average of the lower low water height of each tidal day observed over the official time segment over which tide observations are taken and reduced to obtain mean value (Tidal Datum Epoch).
