Working with emergency responders and communities helps them to plan and prepare for severe weather which might cause disruption.
Ready for when weather conditions pose a risk of interrupting our usual daily routine, the Met Office provides different kinds of information as part of the Public Weather Service.
This includes a team of Civil Contingency Advisors based at locations around the UK. Advisors work with emergency responders, such as the Police, Fire Services, Government Authorities and Utility companies. Meanwhile, Community Resilience groups provide a platform where we can provide advice on what actions could be taken, depending on the type of severe weather warning that has been issued.
Looking much further ahead, our rolling three month outlook provides a general probabilistic guide, to rainfall and temperature themes that the UK could expect.
