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 Cowes in average weather conditions is between -1.95m and 2.12m. It has been between these levels for at least 150 days in the past year.

The usual range of the Tide at Cowes in more extreme weather conditions is between -1.76m and 2.76m. It has been between these levels for 90% of the time since monitoring began.

The highest level ever recorded at the Tide at Cowes is 2.75m, reached on Thursday 1st January 1970 at 1:00am.

Long Term

Darker blue shaded areas on long term data indicate maximum and minimum levels for the date (you may need to zoom in closer to see them).

Long term data may have gaps where the API data was not available.

Download long term data as csv

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.

Important! If you are planning to retrieve the csv data automatically, you must read and understand the limitations on the data and its availability.
