Met Office gives weather-watchers the chance to name this year's stormsSubmitted by Nathan on Tue, 09/08/2015 - 02:00
IT’S that time of year again - the evenings are getting darker and the Atlantic is firing up for the run of storms which usually arrives in autumn.
So far it’s been relatively quiet. This time last year Bertha had already unleashed mayhem, then Cristobal warmed things up before Gonzalo whipped his tail across our fair isles.
We are not unused to some pretty powerful monsters tearing across the country around September/ October time - remember the St Jude Day battering of 2013.
