Named Storms

The great Oz has spoken!

The Met Office have finally sprung into action and have this morning, and rather belatedly in my opinion when compared to their hair trigger like response in the naming of storms Ciara and Dennis, issued a yellow warning for strong winds across Scotland for Monday.

The Met Office have been making a big play about how they spotted an embryonic Dennis developing in a two hundred knot jet stream of the eastern seaboard of America five or six days out, so let’s see how they do with this one.

Dennis the menace!

So storm Dennis is expected to arrive on Saturday the fourth named storm of the season and thankfully with a good old fashioned name that we can all pronounce.
