Cold Weather Warning
As you get older it takes longer to warm up which can be bad for your health. The cold thickens blood and increases blood pressure, and breathing in cold air can increase the risk of chest infections.
There is a strong chance of temperatures falling below 2°C from Wednesday 11th January to Sunday 15th January 2017.
The ideal temperature for a bedroom is 64°F (18°C) and 70°F (21°C) for a living room. Ask older people to check their thermostat or use a room thermometer to monitor temperature, and keep their bedroom windows shut on a winter’s night.
