Small tidal stream inaccuracies can develop when advancing beyond HW Dover +6. Because of this we only enable today's tidal stream chartlets to advance 24 hours. Future tidal planning is best accomplished by using Audley's Roads's future tides predictor below.
The above image represents the current tidal streams offshore of this haven. Streams attaining three knots and above are highlighted by red arrows . All times are in local time with red text indicating springs, blue indicating neaps and gray between tidal events. Click [+] to advance the estimate by an hour and click [-] to step back. Future tidal planning is best accomplished by using Audley's Roads's future tides predictor below.

Arrows represent the direction of tidal streams with lighter or shorter arrows indicating weaker streams. Stronger streams are indicated by heavier or longer arrows, and as mentioned above, red arrows flagging rates of 3 knots and above. Numerals represent [mean neap, mean spring] rates in tenths of a knot. For example the numbers 12,23 would indicate a mean neap of 1.2 knots and a mean spring of 2.3 knots.

This tool can be used to estimate future costal tidal streams for this area. All that is required are two simple steps:
Step 1: What is the Dover High Water for the target date?
Use a current Dover Tide Table to find Dover High Water for the target date. The National Oceanography Centre offers online tidal predictions for up to 28 days from today. Click here to open their tide table for Dover
Step 2: Input the target date's Dover High Water
Taking a mean tidal offset from Dover's tide, we expect your targetted date's associated local tide at to be:
High waters: Low waters:
Data based on an average tide is only accurate to within one hour, if you more precise times are required use the ISA tidal predictions, with Strangford offset -01:00.

Headline: Dry with long sunny spells
Today: Early mist, fog and low cloud soon clearing to leave another dry day with some long spells of sunshine. Warm inland, but cooler near coasts with sea breezes developing. Maximum Temperature 22C.
Tonight: A dry and sunny evening with long clear spells overnight. With light winds a few mist and fog patches developing and, especially in the east patchy low cloud. Chilly Minimum Temperature 4C.
Friday: Any low cloud and mist soon clearing then another dry day with almost unbroken sunshine developing. Warm inland, but cooler near coasts with sea breezes developing. Maximum Temperature 22C.
Outlook for Saturday to Monday: Remaining dry with good spells of sunshine through the coming days, but patchy mist and fog overnight. Feeling warm, locally very warm, but cooler near coasts with sea breezes developing.
