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 Whitby in average weather conditions is between 0.78m and 6.32m. It has been between these levels for at least 150 days in the past year.

The usual range of the Whitby in more extreme weather conditions is between 0.85m and 6.15m. It has been between these levels for 90% of the time since monitoring began.
