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 Tide at North Shields in average weather conditions is between -2.33m and 3.06m. It has been between these levels for at least 150 days in the past year.

The usual range of the Tide at North Shields in more extreme weather conditions is between -2.23m and 2.85m. It has been between these levels for 90% of the time since monitoring began.

The highest level ever recorded at the Tide at North Shields is 3.13m, reached on Thursday 1st January 1970 at 1:00am.
