Run by the Met Office, the UK Storm Centre provides weather information on named wind storms, which are expected to result in significant impacts in the UK and/or Ireland.
The Met Office ‘Name our Storms’ pilot project is being run in the 2015/16 season jointly by the Met Office and Met Éireann, the Irish Met Service. Tthe aim of these two organisations working together is to help raise awareness of severe windy weather and ensure greater public safety.
Over the past few winters the unofficial naming of wind storms which affected the UK and Ireland (such as the 'St Jude's day storm') has shown the benefits of establishing such an official system.
The Met Office and Met Éireann will continue to issue wind weather warnings in the normal way using the Met Office National Severe Weather Warning Service and Met Éireann Weather Warnings.
Please see below the list of UK wind storm names for 2015/2016 season.
