Eventually, the moon will rise again in the east (82º) at 16:58 h.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide was at 5:00 h and the next high tide will be at 17:20 h. The first low tide will be at 11:40 h and the next low tide at 23:50 h.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we will have 12 hours and 58 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 13:20 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 12 hours and 38 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 73, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 77 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 80. The tide heights today are 4.9 m, 0.2 m, 5.0 m and 0.2 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 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 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).
