The tidal coefficient today is 49, 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 drops to 48 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 50. The tide heights today are 1.0 ft, 2.6 ft, 0.3 ft and 1.6 ft.
