Great variation in the weather is experienced locally, due to the proximity of the mountains to the sea.
This is readily demonstrated by comparing the weather at
Barmouth weather station
with that of the
Foel Friog weather station
just 11 miles ESE from Barmouth and the
Dyffryn Arududwy weather station
just 5 miles NNW from Barmouth.
Living beside and crossing the Irish Sea for over 20 years has led me to conclude that the standard Met forecast for Wales seldom
applies to Barmouth and coastal towns in the vicinity. Greater forecasting accuracy for Barmouth comes from Irish Sea forecasts and reviewing the recent weather of the SE of Ireland (see webcams
also). If going up into the hills, visitors should pay attention to the Snowdonia forecast. Deep depressions (Lows) track the Jet Stream
, (see Jet Stream video
) It is possible to use the jet stream forecast to predict the path of lows from the pressure charts.Hence the following links:
Barmouth tide times (low and high tide and predicted heights) for the next 28 days. See 28 day Tidetable for Barmouth.
You can even check the accuracy of today's and yesterday's tidal predictions by comparing with actual readings recorded at Barmouth Bridge See
Barmouth today. (by NOC - Set the data level to"absolute").
