“Level 3 Heat Warning” Issued by WSCC

Residents in West Sussex are being advised to take precautions with heatwave conditions continuing this week, according to the Met Office.

A Heat Health Watch Level 3 has been issued for the South East from today (2 July) until tomorrow night, with highs of 31˚C during the day, and 16˚C expected overnight.

High temperatures are then expected to continue into the weekend.

Some tips on how to cope in the hot weather are:
• avoid getting too hot in the first place – keep windows closed if it is cooler inside, close curtains or blinds. Open windows again when it starts to get cooler outside and temperatures drop but be mindful of security
• check your home’s thermostat or thermometer to see how hot your home is getting
• have plenty of cold drinks and avoid alcohol
• have regular cool baths and showers
• avoid being outside during the hottest part of the day (11am to 3pm), stay in the shade and avoid strenuous activity
• wear appropriate cool, light clothing and a hat
• when going outside, make sure you and your family use sun cream at all times to protect your skin
