Today Tuesday, 26th of May of 2015, the sun rose in Folkestone at 4:50 h and sunset will be at 20:53 h. The moon set at 1:46 h at 280º west. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the east (83º) at 13:14 h.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first low tide was at 0:00 h and the next low tide will be at 12:25 h. The first high tide was at 5:45 h and the next high tide will be at 18:10 h.
The lunar phase is a First Quarter Moon. Today we have 16 hours and 3 minutes of sun. The solar transit is at 12:52 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 12 hours and 32 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 43, 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 45 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 47. The tide heights today are 1.9 m, 5.8 m, 2.2 m and 5.8 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Folkestone which is of 7.6 m and a minimum height of 0.1 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Folkestone 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 1:46 h to 2:46 h, high activity minor period (moonset)
from 7:30 h to 9:30 h, very high activity Major period (moon down)
from 13:14 h to 14:14 h, high activity minor period (moonrise)
from 19:41 h to 21:41 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 Folkestone. 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 Folkestone 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).
