This is a tidal location. Tidal levels are not necessarily updated frequently, and may not reflect tidal movements throughout the day. Levels at this point are measured from mean sea level, not from the river bed. They can, therefore, be negative, and do not give any indication of water depth.

The normal level of the Leith Monitoring Station in average weather conditions is between -2.90m and 9.09m. It has been between these levels for at least 150 days in the past year.

The usual range of the Leith Monitoring Station in more extreme weather conditions is between -2.90m and 8.63m. It has been between these levels for 90% of the time since monitoring began.

Note: CSV data will include any outlying values that have been ignored by our graphing system as probably erroneous (eg, because they are ridiculously high compared to the values either side of them). It is your responsibility to filter these out if necessary.
