Heat Health Alerts – Met Office

A Heat-health watch system operates in England from 1 June to 15 September each year in association with the Public Health England.

The Heat-health watch system comprises four levels of response based upon threshold maximum daytime and minimum night-time temperatures. These thresholds vary by region, but an average threshold temperature is 30 °C by day and 15 °C overnight.
