Met Office in Scotland issues storm warnings.


Following the introduction of the American style system of naming strong wind storms (such as Katrina, Mitch, Stan and Jeanne) the Met Office in Scotland has adopted its own nomenclature that was introduced with Hurricane Bawbag in December 2011.

Sticking to its guns of utilising humour in our own nomenclature (Bawbag was known elsewhere as Freidhelm) we have the first storm of 2015 looming.

It’s being called Abigail (A Big Gail) but I have managed to procure the full A-Z list and although it’s actually classified under the Official Secret’s Act I am sharing it with you.
