Severe weather advice

We will provide latest updates on how to stay safe in severe weather on these pages.

We have advice across our website on what to do in severe weather.

Why are we naming storms?

'Name our storms' is a pilot project between the Met Office and Met Éireann 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.
