What does the Met Office’s amber weather alert mean?

The amber alert applies to extreme heat that has been issued to a large majority of England, including near Bristol and in the South West of England.

Experts at the Met Office have issued the following details of what to expect with an amber weather warning, citing ‘a hot spell on Monday and Tuesday, leading to widespread impacts on people and infrastructure’.

  • Population-wide adverse health effects are likely to be experienced, not limited to those most vulnerable to extreme heat, leading to potential serious illness or danger to life. Government advice is that 999 services should be used in emergencies only; seek advice from 111 if you need non-emergency health advice
  • Substantial changes in working practices and daily routines likely to be required
  • Significantly more people are likely to visit coastal areas, lakes and rivers leading to increased risk of water safety incidents
  • Delays on roads and road closures are possible, along with delays and cancellations to rail and air travel, with potential for significant welfare issues for those who experience even moderate delays
