Severe weather conditions can cause widespread disruption and even pose a threat to safety. The MET Office monitors weather conditions in the UK and uses the National Severe Weather Warning Service to issue warnings when severe weather is likely.
You should regularly check your local weather forecast and keep up to date with the latest weather warnings. An overview of all of the current weather warnings in the UK can be found on the Met Office website.
For your own safety you should understand what the severe weather warnings mean. Our pages for different weather types also tell you what to do when you are affected.
