Today Friday, 31th of July of 2015, the sun rose in Blackpool at 5:27 h and sunset will be at 21:10 h. The moon set at 5:34 h at 244º southwest. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the southeast (113º) at 20:49 h.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first low tide will be at 6:10 h and the next low tide at 18:35 h. The first high tide will be at 11:40 h and the next high tide at 23:55 h.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we have 15 hours and 43 minutes of sun. The solar transit is at 13:18 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 8 hours and 45 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 100. With such a hight coefficient we will have big tides and the currents will also be very evident. At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 102 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 104. The tide heights today are 1.1 m, 8.6 m, 1.1 m and 9.0 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Blackpool which is of 9.8 m and a minimum height of -0.1 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Blackpool tells us that today is an excellent day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is very high. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 0:52 h to 2:52 h, very high activity Major period (moon up)
from 5:34 h to 6:34 h, very high activity minor period (moonset)
from 13:11 h to 15:11 h, very high activity Major period (moon down)
from 20:49 h to 21:49 h, very high activity minor period (moonrise). 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 Blackpool. 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 Blackpool 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).
