All the attention on Helena at the moment but this feature seems to be sneaking under the radar and looks like to bring strong winds to much more of the country and much more widespread heavy rain. If it turns up could bring some widespread issues with trees generally still in full leaf.

Just named jointly by Met Office and Met Eireann
Yellow warnings at the mo, for Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, north Wales, northern England WEDNESDAY
We've already seen three named storms of the so-called "2015-16 UK and Ireland windstorm season", that was trialled this year by the Met Office and the Met Eireann. With some more to come over the next few weeks and months, we can look forward top some more named storms.
So what are your thoughts on it so far? Has it been a nice addition, or have you generally considered it to be rather pointless? Should we keep using it from here-on in?
I personally think we should keep it. It kind of makes them seem a bit more exciting when we give them a name, and adds a new talking point to the weather.

I've just written a blog hopefully explaining more about how the Met Office create their weather warnings and how the 3 levels now include likelihood of severe weather and the possible impacts.
Did you know this about the impacts?
Is this the right way to go for the public?
With this explanation do you feel the warnings are now more helpful to you?
The Matrix is now a key part of the warning, but is there anyway to show high impact, lower likelihood
or medium likelihood of low impact event from just the 3 colours?
