UK Storm names
Starting in Winter 2015, severe storms in the United Kingdom are given names in the same way that
hurricanes are named in the Americas.
Each storm is given a name from a list which is maintained by the UK Meteorological Office and the Irish Met Eireann service.
To avoid confusion, if a storm is the remnant of a named hurricane or tropical storm then it will retain that name, e.g. "Ex-hurricane Cristobal,"
rather than take on a new name from the list below.
