I never noticed until now, and it’s a most bizarre coincidence, but according to the 06 UTC analysis for the 16th of October 1987, the low that was the ‘Great storm’ was labelled ‘M’ for Mike. Labelling that low ‘M’ does look rather odd in itself because the next low coming out of Canada is labelled ‘E’. I always assumed that the office back then labelled lows and highs consecutively.
