Met Office Releases Risk of More Bad Weather for Londoners

What to do in severe weather conditions

9th March 2023

Following the Met Office's warning of increased risk of further snow and ice in London, the following advice will help to keep you safe during this latest spell of cold weather.

  • Stay tuned into the UK forecast.
  • Check your day time room temperature and maintain it between 18 - 20°C.
  • Check your bedroom night-time temperature and maintain it at 18 °C.
  • Heat only those rooms you use in order to save energy and money.
  • Remember that some ventilation is important to avoid damp and mould; so ventilate your rooms for 30 minutes a day when they are not being used or ensure that condensation is regularly wiped away.
  • If you are vulnerable or unwell, make sure you make yourself known to a family member, friend, or neighbour who can regularly check in on you (by phone or a personal visit).
  • If you have to go out, make sure you dress warmly and wear non-slip shoes. Also tell someone where you are going and let them know when you get back. If you have a mobile phone keep it charged and with you at all times.
  • If you are able, clear pavements of ice or snow.
  • Keep active by walking around your home, or doing gentle exercises while sitting down, such as rotating your arms and moving your legs.
  • Dress warmly, eat warm food and take warm drinks regularly.
  • Check on those you know are at risk.
  • If you are unable to get out to do your shopping or visit a health care provider, contact a family member, friend, or neighbour. If you are unable to do so, and are concerned about your own health or welfare or that of others, alert emergency services.
