Weather and Tides
Weather throughout Mendocino County can be quite variable. Use the KOZT weather app to find the current conditions and forecast for specific areas in Mendocino County.
Tides are important if you are tidepooling, going to the beach, or kayaking in the ocean or coastal rivers. Glass Beach and tidepools are best visited during low tide. Check out the kayaking page for more information on planning with the tides.
If you are planning an adventure on the ocean, knowing the current conditions and the forecast is important. If these forecasts and reports are not familiar to you, going on a guided trip is safer than winging it.
