Why are we naming storms?

'Name our storms' is a pilot project between the Met Office and Met √Čireann which aims to increase awareness of severe weather and ensure greater safety of the public.

Over the course of 2016/17 wind storms with the potential to affect the UK and/or Ireland will be given a name to help effective communication of the storm and its impacts.
