On 30th September 2015 at ~01.00hrs we experienced at Heysham/Morecambe the Highest Predicted Astronomical Tide Height of 10.76m. This was the highest predicted tide for at least the next 10 years and was due to the closeness of the the moon to the earth this year. Added to the astronomical tide height could be a storm surge which might increase the height considerably more.  You can read about tides and storm surge predictions etc on the National Tidal and Sea Level Facility website – follow the link on this website at the Weather,Tides & Cams / Tidal Surge Prediction for Heysham  menu.

You can also follow the progress of lightning storms by using the link at the            Weather, Tides & Cams / Lightning Strikes  menu.
