Today Wednesday, 3rd of September of 2014, the sun rose in Melbourne at 6:39 am and sunset will be at 6:00 pm. The moon set at 1:18 am at 247º southwest. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the southeast (114º) at 11:43 am.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first low tide was at 2:05 am and the next low tide will be at 2:10 pm. The first high tide was at 8:30 am and the next high tide will be at 8:05 pm.
The lunar phase is a First Quarter Moon. Today we have 11 hours and 21 minutes of sun. The solar transit is at 12:20 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 13 hours and 35 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 48, a low value, which means that the range (difference between high tide and low tide) will be lower than on other occasions and the currents will also be small. At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 52 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 57. The tide heights today are 0.1 m, 0.7 m, 0.3 m and 0.8 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Melbourne which is of 1.0 m and a minimum height of 0.0 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Melbourne tells us that today is a good day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is high. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 1:18 am to 2:18 am, high activity minor period (moonset)
from 6:30 am to 8:30 am, very high activity Major period (moon down). This period of high activity coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 11:43 am to 12:43 pm, high activity minor period (moonrise)
from 6:59 pm to 8:59 pm, very high activity Major period (moon up)
Tide timetable for Melbourne. The times are generated in local time in Victoria and the daylight saving time change is calculated automatically, so you don't need to add or subtract anything. 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 Melbourne 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).
