Working together for a resilient Birmingham.


The Met Office have issued a Level 3 Cold Weather Alert which indicates that there is a 90% probability of severe cold weather/icy conditions/ heavy snow between 0900 on Thursday 14th January and 1200 on Tuesday 19th January 2016, that is likely to affect parts of England including the West Midlands.

This weather could increase the health risk to vunerable patients and disrupt the delivery of services.

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.
