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 usual range of the Tide at Lowestoft in more extreme weather conditions is between -1.22m and 1.52m. It has been between these levels for 90% of the time since monitoring began.
