The Met Office is the national meteorological service for the UK and provides critical weather services and forecasts.
The Met Office's Fire Severity Index (FSI), is an assessment of how severe a fire could become if one were to start. The FSI shows the current day's fire severity and a forecast of likely fire severity over the coming five days.
Gov.uk provide a flood information service, which provides flood warnings, river, sea, groundwater and rainfall level information, and a five-day flood risk analysis for England and Wales.
You can sign up to get flood alerts in England by phone, email or text message if your home or business is at risk of flooding. The service is free. When you register, ‘opt in’ to receive flood alerts as well as flood warnings.
Although flood alerts and warnings may not be available for all locations, a warning or alert to an incident happening nearby can still provide you with valuable information to help you prepare.
Simply type in the town, village or county you are interested in and select the warning or alert area that would be helpful to you – you don’t need to have a postcode.
This will prompt you to consider who you would need to contact in the case of an emergency and to create a list of useful contact details. It also provides a checklist of actions to carry out ahead of rising water levels.
You can also speak to a Floodline adviser by calling 0345 988 1188. This is a 24 hour service.

Welsh members can sign up to the NRW flood alerts.
