Level 3 – Cold Weather Action

The Met Office have issued a Level 3 Cold Weather Alert which indicates that there is a 100% probability of severe cold weather up until 10.00 am on Sunday 5th February 2012 that is likely to affect parts of England, including the West Midlands. For more details follow the attached link to the Met Office Website http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/uk/coldweatheralert/ and http://www.birminghamprepared.gov.uk/advice/specific-risks/snow-and-low-temperatures/  for helpful advice during snow and low temperatures.

The cold weather health watch comprises four levels of response based on cold weather thresholds. The thresholds have been developed to trigger an alert when severe cold weather is likely to significantly affect people’s health. The alerts take account of temperature along with other winter weather threats such as ice and snow.
