Met Office storm names: Is your name on the list?

Met Office storm names: Is your name on the list?

The Met Office said it will name storms for a second year in a row if there is the potential for amber or red warnings for wind or - for the first time - rain or snow.

Whether a storm is considered big enough to have its own name comes down to the probable impact of a storm.

The Met Office began naming storms previous year in the hope that people would take them more seriously.

They are among 21 names which will be given to the weather systems which have the most potential to cause problems across the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Having been inundated with suggestions previous year, the forecasters picked the latest names from the 10,000 entries they had already received.

"By naming storms more people were made aware of the approaching threat of severe weather and were able to act on this information", said Derek Ryall, head of public weather services at Met Office.

Israel denies its aircraft harmed after raid in Syria
The Israeli air force responded by conducting missions overnight to target Syrian regime artillery positions. On Monday Israel attacked a Syrian military position in Quneitra, near the Israeli border.

Over the course of the 2015/16 season, 11 storms were named.

This was shown when the scheme got underway with Storm Abigail in November the names were quickly adopted by the public, the media, our partners and responder organisations.

The full list of the names is: Angus, Barbara, Conor, Doris, Ewan, Fleur, Gabriel, Holly, Ivor, Jacqui, Kamil, Louise, Malcolm, Natalie, Oisin, Penelope, Robert, Susan, Thomas, Valerie and Wilbert.

Met Eireann and the British Met Office have released a new batch of monikers that will be applied to weather systems that batter the country. "People were therefore better informed".

The storms are not named using the letters Q, U, X, Y or Z, in line with the naming conventions for hurricanes in the US.

Oisín, Doris and Wilbert are among the storm names we will hear in Irish weather warnings in the coming months.
