Severe weather

Last updated 28th July, 2015

We have plans in place to respond to severe weather. It doesn’t necessarily mean everything will run perfectly – but as far as possible we want to keep things running as normally as possible.

The Met Office has responsibility for warning you of severe or hazardous weather where it has the potential to cause danger to life or widespread disruption. They provide three types of warnings. These are:

  • Advisory of severe or extreme weather – risk of a severe weather event occurring in the next five days – early warnings and flash warnings supersede advisories when confidence levels are 60% or greater
  • Early warning of severe or extreme weather – overall risk is above 60%
  • Flash warnings of severe or extreme weather – 80% or greater confidence that severe weather is expected in the next few hours
