Levels in tidal waters 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. Tidal levels are not necessarily updated frequently, and may not reflect tidal movements throughout the day.

The normal level of the North Sea at Blyth in average weather conditions is between -2.71m and 2.60m. It has been between these levels for at least 151 days in the past year.

The usual range of the North Sea at Blyth in more extreme weather conditions is between -2.09m and 2.68m. It has been between these levels for 90% of the time since monitoring began.

The highest level ever recorded at the North Sea at Blyth is 3.88m, reached on Thursday 1st January 1970 at 1:00am.
