OFFICIAL STATEMENT : NO TREND IN STORMS DUE TO CLIMATE CHANGE

 

Storms 

A total of four storms were named in 2022 but three of them came in the space of a week.  

Storms Dudley, Eunice and Franklin impacted the UK in February 2022, with Storm Eunice resulting in red warnings for wind and saw a new highest maximum gust speed record for England set of 122mph at the Needles on the Isle of Wight.  

Dr Mark McCarthy said: “There’s no evidence of a trend in storminess because of climate change, but this spell of impactful weather in February is certainly noteworthy. It was the first time three named storms had impacted the UK in a week, with Eunice being particularly impactful for much of southern England and Wales.” 

“It’s also noteworthy that there haven’t been any named storms to impact the UK since that week in February.”
