Coldest temperatures will develop first in the North where there is a high risk of snow showers, particularly over hills, and overnight frosts.
Please make sure you have everything you need to keep warm and well.
As you get older it takes longer to warm up which can be bad for your health. The cold thickens blood and increases blood pressure, and breathing in cold air can increase the risk of chest infections.
The ideal temperature for a bedroom is 64°F (18°C) and 70°F (21°C) for a living room. We advise older people to check their thermostat or use a room thermometer to monitor temperature, and keep their bedroom windows shut on a winter’s night.
