About the Met Office Weather Warnings

The Met Office issues weather warnings when severe weather has the potential to impact the UK.

The Met Office issues warnings for rain, thunderstorms, wind, snow, lightning, ice, extreme heat and fog. These warnings are given a colour depending on a combination of both the impact the weather may have and the likelihood of those impacts occurring.
