Cold Weather Warning

There is a strong chance of temperatures falling below 2°C from Monday 28th November to Friday 2nd December.
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.

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.
