Minimum wind chill (°C)
Last update 25 April 00:51
Tips for today
Wear a hat and scarf
Wear layers to help retain your heat
Wear a windproof jacket, so the wind does not blow the heat from your layers of clothing
Make sure you drink enough. The cold (and dry) air can dry out your mucous membranes, enabling flu viruses to nestle in your sinuses.
Make sure the humidity in your house is not too low. Place a bowl of water on the radiator.
Maintain good hygiene
Use a tissue when coughing and sneezing.
Wash your hands regularly
Teach children to cover their mouths when sneezing or coughing and then to wash their hands properly.
Cold, high winds and substantial fluctuations in temperature all affect our resistance and make us more susceptible to viruses. The difference between the symptoms of flu, a bad cold and other virus infections is small. A proper dose of flu can easily cost you a week, whereas you normally get over a cold after a couple of days. The flu forecast lets you see if there is a higher risk of cold or flu as a result of the weather.
