We've had the likes of Desmond, Caroline, Brian and Fionn in the past, and tonight we'll learn the names of the Winter storms for the upcoming season.

The storms are named by Met Eireann and their UK counterparts - the Met Office.

Both organisations have been previewing the announcement in the past couple of days.

Meanwhile, they've also been teasing us with potential names that could be on the list, as they've carried out polls on their respective Twitter accounts.

The UK Met Office has also posted an explainer as to how they pick the names

The names will be released at midnight.
