Why are there no storms for Q, U, X, Y and Z?

To ensure that the Met Office conforms to the US National Hurricane Center’s naming convention, it does not include names that begin with the letters Q, U, X, Y, and Z. This is to ensure ensure consistency for official North Atlantic hurricane naming – to reduce confusion for weather professionals, captains and navigators.

In the US, when all names in the hurricane alphabet are used, the naming convention follows the Greek alphabet (Alpha, Beta, Gamma…).

Why did the UK start naming storms?

Analysis has shown that naming storms makes people more aware of severe weather and helps them prepare for them in advance.

Surveys show that people are more aware of the threat and more likely to take action after hearing the storm’s name, rather than a forecast that simply says bad weather is coming.

The Met Office and its Irish partner Met Eireann have decided to stick to the girl-and-son naming system for US tropical cyclones and hurricanes.

Is there a difference between male and female storms?

A study of Americans stormy unraveled an alarming pattern and explained that more storm deaths were “female” than those with male names.

The cause depends on how we subconsciously view gender, as we are more likely to assume that storms named after women are less dangerous. According to researchers at the University of Illinois, this means that people will take fewer precautions to protect themselves.

Incredible, 2014 study added that the more feminine the name, the more people killed by the storm. Researchers have even suggested that renaming a hurricane from Charley to Eloise could triple the death toll.

“When assessing the intensity of a hurricane, people seem to be applying their beliefs about how men and women should behave,” said co-author Sharon Shavitt, a professor at the University of Illinois.
