Met Office - Get Ready for Winter

Plan ahead to make sure you're prepared for the challenges of winter weather

Winter can bring all sorts of challenges so it's good to be prepared. You'll need to prepare your home for cold weather, storms, or perhaps even flooding. You can also help your neighbours and community to plan ahead for snow, ice and flooding.

And it's not only your home and property you'll need to protect, if you have a business this needs some consideration too. We have lots of tips for businesses in severe weather.

You'll need to look after your health and the health of those around you. We have useful advice for keeping yourself and your home warm, keeping well in winter as well as health advice for older people in winter.
