** HEATWAVE WARNING NOTICE **
13 July 2022:
Temperatures are expected to remain in the mid-to-high twenties across much of Somerset this week and over the weekend, and the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) has issued a Level 3 Heat Health Warning for the South West.
Whilst weather like this is something that many people look forward to, and go out and enjoy, it is worth remembering that sunny spells can pose health risks for some people. Those at risk may not recognise their own vulnerability to high temperatures.
Check weather forecasts, including UV forecasts, and if spending time outdoors remember to travel with bottled water and protect yourself from the sun during the hottest hours of the day, usually between 11am – 3pm. We also suggest checking latest events information directly with providers as they may have to adapt arrangements during such high temperatures.
