Weather: This season's STORM NAMES are released

Atiyah, Gerda, Kitty and Willow are among the storm names that could be blowing across Britain this year.

The Met Office and Met Eireann have announced the storm names for 2019-20.

This year they ran a 'Name Our Storms' campaign collecting suggestions from the public.

It is the fifth year the 'Name our Storms' campaign has helped raise awareness of the potential impacts of severe weather in Britain and Ireland before it hits.

Evelyn Cusack, Head of Forecasting at Met Éireann, said:

“The naming of storms by National Met Services as well as colour coding weather warnings provides a clear, authoritative and consistent message to the public and prompts people to take action to prevent harm to themselves or to their property.
