So far we have been blown around by Frank, Gertrude and Henry among others.

But which names are next on the list?

The Met Office decided to start naming storms in concert with the Irish meteorological service Met Éireann in 2015, in an effort to increase awareness of severe weather and boost safety.

Storm names

Storms are given names selected from a pool submitted by the public, running from A-W, missing out Q, U, X, Y and Z, in line with US hurricane naming convention.
