Today Sunday, 26th of April of 2015, the sun will rise in Bideford at 5:58 h and sunset will be at 20:30 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 2:44 h at 293º northwest. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the northeast (69º) at 12:44 h.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first low tide will be at 6:40 h and the next low tide at 19:00 h. The only high tide of the day will be at 12:40 h.
The lunar phase is a First Quarter Moon. Today we will have 14 hours and 32 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 13:14 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 14 hours and 0 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 39, 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 41 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 43. The tide heights today are 0.7 m, 4.3 m and 0.9 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Bideford which is of 6.2 m and a minimum height of -0.8 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Bideford 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 2:44 h to 3:44 h, high activity minor period (moonset)
from 7:44 h to 9:44 h, very high activity Major period (moon down)
from 12:44 h to 13:44 h, high activity minor period (moonrise)
from 19:58 h to 21:58 h, very high activity Major period (moon up). This period of high activity coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
Tide timetable for Bideford. The times are generated in local time in England 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 Bideford 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).
